A Level Art Exhibited At The Royal Overseas League, London
Eleanor W and Ella M had work selected earlier in the year to go on show at Royal Overseas League in London. The ‘Royal British Artist Rising Stars Exhibition’ opened to the public on 9th February. The exhibition was well attended by families, public and distinguished guests.
The girls are two of just twenty two aspiring young artists, who were initially discovered and proposed by NADFAS (The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) and selected by the RBA from hundreds of entries submitted for consideration from across the country. The hundreds of entries submitted had already been selected as the best each establishment had to offer, so making it to the last twenty two is no mean feat. This is the second year in a row that AKS has had two students of the twenty-two selected, for such a prestigious accolade. To have two pieces from the same school, for the second year running, speaks volumes about the quality of art and design at AKS. Ella Morris has now been selected twice with her smoke fired ceramic animal sculptures.
The finalists presented at The Royal Overseas League were selected for their exceptional works which combine the highest levels of skill, expression and draughtsmanship. The art presented uses a variety of media exploring equally varied subjects and ultimately offering a glimpse into the future of art and design.
Following The Rising Stars exhibition at The Royal Overseas League, the works will go on display at the Mall Galleries, London from 22 March - 1 April 2017 where they will sit alongside those of professional artists at the Royal British Artist's Annual Exhibition, which features the best contemporary representational painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing.
Eleanor and Ella both attended the preview evening of ‘Rising Stars Exhibition’ at The Royal Overseas League in London with their families, which were well attended by the public and distinguished guests. The exhibited work looked spectacular in the fabulous, grand settings of this public exhibition space.
The rest of the pieces from AKS, that were shortlisted for these exhibitions, will go on show later in the year at the Drawn From Youth 7 Exhibition at the Fylde Gallery in Lytham, which opens to the public on Wednesday 16th March - Thursday 20th April.
