Art & Design Pupils Have Their Work Selected For Professional Exhibition

02 November 2021

As the COP26 climate summit shines a spotlight on the climate change emergency, here in Norwich an exhibition has opened, highlighting the importance of trees for our future and featuring artwork from some Norwich School pupils.

The exhibition, entitled, Celebrating Trees opened on Monday 1st November at St Margaret’s Church in St Benedict’s Street and will run daily from 10am to 4pm until 13th November. It includes work by over 40 renowned local artists, painters, sculptors and photographers including Derrick Greaves, Liz McGowan, and Tor Falcon and Ivy Smith. It will also feature work by members of the Arborealist Group, who exhibit nationally and in Europe, as well as pieces from children, including pupils of Norwich School.

The exhibition was conceived over two years ago, when pupils at Norwich School were invited to create work in response to the theme of celebrating trees as part of their art and design work, with a view to this work being submitted for submission to an exhibition by the same name. Sadly, the exhibition had to be postponed due to COVID-19 but after a long wait, the art is finally being showcased.

Organisers hope that the exhibition will inspire visitors to plant a free themselves and felt it was important to include work of younger artists as trees are so vital for their future. The work of 12 aspiring artists from Norwich School has been selected for inclusion in the exhibition, which will go on display alongside work from their teachers Andy Campbell and Louise Richardson:
