Wednesday, 14 November 2018
An Open Art Exhibition, running this week and curated by the Boys’ Division Art Department and PA on behalf of the entire Bolton School Foundation, has revealed amazing 'in-house' artistic talent across a wide range of creative disciplines.
Opening the event, Art Teacher Mrs Mags Ryder talked about the history of art and how it has always been fundamental to humankind. Headmaster Mr Philip Britton was delighted to share with the audience that the Boys’ Division had recently been awarded Platinum Artsmark status and both he and Miss Hincks, Headmistress of the Girls’ Division, spoke of how creativity is particularly important in today’s world. They both commended the community for delivering such a rich and varied collection.
The exhibition was open to anyone associated with the Foundation, including pupils, parents, teachers, staff and alumni and numerous ‘highly commended’ blue rosettes were awarded to outstanding pieces. There were over 100 entries in a range of disciplines, including painting, drawing, print work, model making, photography, quilt-making, art installation creation, ceramics, ornament-making, sculpting, textiles, graphics, carving and dress-making.
Mrs Ryder said: "“The exhibition was everything we had hoped it would be – a true celebration of the breadth and depth of creative talent within Bolton School and beyond. There was an excitement in the Arts’ Centre Hall with several hundred visitors enjoying the work on show.”
