Artwork Exhibited at University
Wednesday, 29 June 2016
Artwork produced by Bolton School’s GCSE and A Level artists has been exhibited at the Best of Bolton Schools’ Art and Design Exhibition. The event is a collaboration between the University and schools in Bolton, and features the best work from secondary school pupils across the borough. The work of pupils from both Divisions was showcased and illustrated the diversity and creativity within the School. This annual exhibition is hosted by the University of Bolton at the Innovation Factory of the School of Arts, Media and Education.
The work on display from the Girls’ Division, curated by Miss Fazackerley, varied from traditional painted canvases and digital media and screen prints, to creative and unusual ceramic pieces. Boys’ Division work, which had been assembled by Mrs Ryder, included virtual art which came to life on a screen and an “everyday scene” of a train station on a Colgate toothpaste packet.
The exhibition is sponsored by The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS), Bolton Decorative and Fine Art Society, and the University of Bolton. Miss Fazackerley is also one of the main organisers, working with the Fine Art department at Bolton University.
A number of prizes were presented on the opening evening of the exhibition, with the Achievement going to Girls’ Division Year 13 pupil Nuala Fowler! This means that the School had picked up prizes for the past five years. Nuala received £75 of Ken Bromley art supplies as her prize.
