Falmouth School held its annual art exhibition last week, showcasing GCSE Art, design and A level work for Art and Photography. The exhibition was again displayed in the school foyer which had been transformed during the week into an exciting gallery setting to showcase students work. As always the quality of work was professional and skilful with some outstanding visual artwork in a broad range of media including painting, digital art and 3D sculpture.

There was a fantastic atmosphere during the evening as visitors had the opportunity of voting for the most creative and technical piece of art shortlisted by the art staff in these categories. Congratulations to all the students who were nominated for the creative and technical categories. Following a brief deliberation on the votes, the winners were announced by our special guest the mayor of Falmouth, Grenville Chapel, who annually supports the school in attending the exhibition and appreciating the talent of our students.

Bartek Machnik picked up the GCSE Art Creative Award, Harry Kitto was named GCSE Art Technical winner, Jay Seamark the Creative Photography winner and Ryan Angliss the winner of the Photography Technical award.

Head of Art at Falmouth School, Billie Lee-Smith said “Our annual art exhibition continues to celebrate and showcase our student’s creative and artistic talent. Art enables our young people to realise their creativity and more importantly reflect students’ individuality, interests and expression.”

“I am very proud of our students’ success and the hard work that they put into achieving their full potential in this creative area with the help of their teachers. The exhibition is an opportunity to show off their hard work but also to inspire others with their creativity and skills. The quality of work improves every year and that this year’s exhibition is reflective of the examination success of the year group. This is something that we celebrate and will continue to build on,” she added.

The exhibition will remain displayed in the school foyer into the next term and if any member of the public wishes to view the exhibition they can do so by contacting the school.
