Outstanding talent on show at Art Exhibition 2014

The ARK William Parker Academy Art Exhibition has been a great success. The event showcased the outstanding talent of A Level and Year 11 GCSE students on Art and Design and Graphics courses.  A massive range of media, techniques and approaches were used; subjects ranged from Steven Edmett’s shark sculpture, inspired by Damian Hirst, to William Francis’ mosaic painting of the Queen; film work, developed by graphics students Steven Pelling and Jack Sleath, was also on display.

The event concluded with a celebration evening on Thursday 19th June when students were awarded gifts for effort and outstanding work. In Year 11 the awards for producing outstanding work over the two year course went to Barnaby Gooch and Harry Stevens. Awards for outstanding work and effort in AS went to Bethany Hodges and  Barnaby Catterall; Year 13 awards went to Sam McMillan and Bradley Toft; AS Graphics awards went to Max Graham and Stephen Edmett, and finally, the Year 13 Graphics awards for outstanding effort went to Michael Manyarara and Stephen Pelling.

Sonny Woodhead head of Art said “It has been a pleasure to set up the show this year and see the work come to life. The standard of work is outstanding once again. Well done to all who have contributed and thank you to all those who have been involved in making this such an exciting exhibition.”
