Student Art Exhibition a great success
Sunday 27 October 2019

Visitors to a student art exhibition have been casting their vote for the ‘People’s Award’. Organised by Liskeard’s Arts Society, the exhibition at Stuart House which ran from 21st October to 25th October 2019 showcased exceptional quality artwork of talented Year 10 and Year 11 GCSE students (15 and 16 year olds) from four local secondary schools - Liskeard, Looe, Saltash and Torpoint.

From the artwork submitted by each school, 30 pieces were selected for the exhibition. “We’re really proud we’ve had some of our students’ work chosen and it’s good that the creative arts are still being recognised as an important part of our wider culture,” commented Emma Thomas, the Curriculum Lead for Art and Design at Torpoint Community College.

Mary Utton, Chair of Liskeard Arts, remarked, “Young Arts is an important area of work for the Society. By profiling young people’s exceptional artwork we aim to inspire them with a lasting enthusiasm for the arts.”

Feedback from the public has been very positive. People have commented on the very impressive work by extremely talented young artists, the breadth and diversity of the artwork on show, and how imaginative young people are. The overall feeling was that this was a brilliant and enjoyable exhibition with well-presented work. Most importantly it has given students a lovely chance to have their work exhibited in public.
