Thanks to Diane for sharing details of this upcoming exhibition and project with the Vectis Decorative Arts Society. More details on the last lecture of the season taking place this Thursday to follow. Ed
As part of a series of summer exhibitions the society has been invited to display the work of students from the Isle of Wight College. The exhibition is by A Level Art students and has been undertaken as an enrichment project funded by Vectis NADFAS focusing on reviving traditional arts skills.
On the students request the two areas chosen for development were printmaking and sculpture. Colin Riches and Tabitha Feddon were chosen as artists who would mentor the students giving initial workshops and then follow up tutorials when students had begun a body of work. The students were supported by college tutors Hannah Ray and Carly Lacey.
The exhibition runs from Tuesday 25th June until Thursday 4th July and is open from Monday to Thursday 10am to 4pm.
There is ample parking, a coffee shop and tours of this historic church can be provided on request.
