Last week, level 3 Art and Design students, Anthony Read and Ruby Christie, presented their work at the ‘My World’ exhibition in the Artizan Gallery in Torquay.

Artizan Gallery is an independent fine art gallery based in Torbay committed to supporting the local arts community from emerging to professional artists across the English Riviera and South Devon. ‘My World’ will continue their work with students and young artists, marking their most ambitious attempt to reach out to the local education sector, as well as acting as a platform to launch new opportunities for young people at the gallery.

With the sponsorship of Cavanna Homes students had the opportunity to enter a diverse exhibition to showcase their talent in four categories: Photography, Sculpture, Fine Art, and Other. Work has been judged, and awards were presented to four practicing artists from each age category (KS3, KS4 and KS5).

Two of those awards went to Anthony and Ruby. Anthony won the KS5 prize for the Other category and Ruby had won the KS5 award for the Fine Art category. Anthony’s work had impressed so much that he even managed to sell one of his pieces at the private viewing on Tuesday 22nd October.

Congratulations to both Anthony and Ruby for not only being successful in securing a place to present their work at the exhibition but also attaining awards for their work in each of their categories.

The exhibition is running until 2nd November 2019 so you’ll be able to see their amazing work on display until then.
