Tasker art students exhibit in professional gallery

 

The January exhibition at the Waterfront Gallery in Milford Docks is a little different from usual.  It's a showcase for the artwork of GCSE and `A' level students from Tasker MilwardSchool.

David Randell, the Gallery Director explained "It's part of our mission statement to encourage and support the work of young artists and craft workers and when we heard that many of the students are contemplating a career in the creative arts it seemed a great idea to offer them an exhibition."

The show, especially commissioned by Chris Prosser, Head of Art and his colleague Shana Edwards said, "This was a wonderful opportunity for students to work towards a live brief and there's certainly been an exciting buzz of activity in the art rooms in the run up to Christmas. Many of the students have been experimenting with new methods and techniques and it 's been amazing to see so many different outcomes in different media all born from similar or the same starting points."

Pupils have been working hard pursuing a variety of themes but predominantly focussing on their surroundingenvironment, the coastline, docks, people, flora and fauna and the title "Elements" refers to the formal attributes of art & design, such as line, tone, form and colour.

The exhibition will be officially opened by Ms Kate Evans-Hughes, PCC Director of Children & Schools on Thursday 22 January and will continue until 28 February.

Chris Prosser concluded "This is a great opportunity for the school and the department to showcase its pupils' talents to the general public and within a professional environment and we're very grateful to the gallery for giving us this opportunity."

 

Exhibition opens on Thursday 22 January and continues until28 February

The gallery is open from Monday to Saturday 10.30am till 4.00pm.
