On 5th March judging took place for the group schools exhibition taking place in the Crypt this month. Sixth Form Students 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.
At the end of the project five schools submitted work along with proposals and a selection was chosen from each by 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.
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.
Many thanks to the judges who went to great efforts to help curate what is set to be a really exciting show.
The private view will take place on 15th March 2018 - all are welcome.
