Creative and inspiring exhibition
Wednesday, 13 June 2012
THE opening of the GCSE art and design technology exhibition by pupils at Kelly College on Friday evening had plenty to catch the eye.
There was some stunning work on show in both the art and DT categories, with the art exhibition including both GCSE coursework and final exam pieces, and the DT exhibition showing off some superb finished pieces.
The art was inspired by the title ‘Ordinary and Extraordinary’ – which resulted in an array of artwork, utilising many different styles and techniques. Some featured self portraits, musical influences, coastal and landscape reflections as well as one pupil, Louisa Butcher, choosing to paint a striking painting of her grandfather.
An amazing variety of work, including a number of tables, was on show from the DT pupils, from a contemporary occasional table of American oak, incorporating glass and slate, by Guy Coulton, to an American ash, minimalist, nesting work station by Jack Routly which he described as representing ‘function over form’.
Some of the pupils decided to rise to the challenge of working with stainless steel, with some very effective and inspiring results.
The art exhibition will be open until tomorrow (June 15) at the Westall Centre, Kelly College.
