Schools in Norfolk collaborate to create an art exhibition 'Response'

08 March 2018

The school's latest exhibition to take place in the Crypt gallery is titled 'Response' and will take place from the 16th-23rd March 2018, with the private view taking place on Thursday 15th March 5-7pm. 

Sixth Form pupils from across Norfolk were asked to visit three exhibitions held in Norwich and begin a project in response to one or more of these shows. This included Rembrandt: Lightening the Darkness at Norwich Castle, The Jerwood Drawing Prize at NUA's East Gallery and Laurence Edwards solo-show Visitor at the Crypt. 

The schools involved are as follows: City of Norwich School, Dereham Sixth Form College, Reepham High School and College, Norwich School and Wymondham High Academy. 

At the end of the project five schools submitted work along with proposals and a selection was chosen on the 5th March by each of our four judges; Fay Harris (NUA), Hannah Wooller (Hudson Architects), Selwyn Taylor and Keith Roberts (both Norfolk Contemporary Art Society.)

It was a fantastic morning and the judges were really impressed by the variation and quality of work submitted.

Congratulations should go to those who have been selected. Everyone who submitted work should also be commended for their efforts - all work will be shown digitally during the show. 

Many thanks to the judges who went to great efforts to help curate what is set to be a really exciting show.
