Land, Sea and Sky: an exhibition of GCSE Art & Textiles students from Framingham Earl High School
The Dragonfly Gallery is delighted to host an online exhibition of GCSE Art & Textiles students from Norfolk School, Framingham Earl High School.
Students, who recently had their own exhibition, due to take place in March, cancelled because of the corona virus outbreak, will now be able to see their work online and share it with their family and friends.
Welcome to our inaugural Year 10 exhibition Land, Sea and Sky. The work on display here was made by our GCSE fine art and GCSE fine art textiles students (during a 10-hour mock exam spread over two days!) and represents the culmination of 6 months’ hard work. During which time these fantastic young people have explored artists; experimented with materials, techniques and processes; and ultimately developed their own artistic approach.
Much of the artwork is based on photographs and drawings made on our trip to Southwold in September. However, you will see when looking at the work that some students have broadened their exploration of the theme Land, Sea and Sky by studying landscapes, cityscapes and places that are personal to them.
We have been bowled over by the quality of the work and the preparedness with which each and every student approached their exam. Some students study both fine art and fine art textiles, which means these particular individuals sat 20 hours of exams in just four days! An incredible feat by anybody’s standards.
Thank you to Miss Palmer for her outstanding textiles teaching and to our technician Miss Stanley for masterminding and curating this entire exhibition. A huge thank you also to Wayland Dragonfly Gallery for coming to the rescue and generously offering to host our exhibition.
A happy consequence of exhibiting our work online means that we can invite many more people to see it – please share this exhibition with your friends and family so that as many people as possible can share in celebrating your work.
It has been a pleasure to watch everybody develop as artists this year and we look forward to all being together in the art department again soon.
Be kind to each other and keep safe.
Mr Wall, Miss Palmer and Miss Stanley
