ART EXHIBITION June 12 2008

This year's annual Art Exhibition took place on Thursday 12 June. The work displayed involved selected work from all the GCSE and AS and A level students.
It was lovely to see so many visitors during the evening and equally lovely to hear such wonderful comments about the exhibits. This year, all the examination groups have achieved a particularly high standard of work, with outstanding results.
This year's annual Art Exhibition was the final accumulation of a very successful year.
Our current A level students who wished to continue to study Art and Design have all secured places at universities and colleges for next year.

Special congratulations go to Jenny Buckingham who has a place at Sheffield University to study Architecture, Catherine Martin Jones will be studying Fine Art at Aberystwyth University, Rachel Greenaway has gained a place at London College of Fashion and Kate Annis has been offered a place at Wimbledon College London.

Hannah Reilly has secured a place at Glasgow School of Art to study Fine Art. She will be the fourth student from South Wilts' in four years to study at this School of Art.

We are delighted that some of Hannah's art work will be displayed at
' The Royal Academy A level Summer Exhibition' This Exhibition had over 760 submissions from A Level / IB and Higher students from all over the UK. Eventually 40 works were finally selected from a shortlist of 105 submissions.
Hannah entered two paintings;' Ugandan Girl' which has been selected for the main show and her other painting,' Homeless man' can be viewed in the shortlist category.

The Art Department continues to be very proud of their students and wishes them all a well deserved rest and a lovely summer holiday. Miss Evans

The Art Department at South Wilts' Grammar School are absolutely delighted that one of their A Level art students has had two out of two of her submitted paintings accepted by The Royal Academy London.

Hannah Reilly's work was submitted on line to' The Royal Academy A level Summer Exhibition'. This unique event which first started last year invites all A Level art students the opportunity of showing their artwork on The Royal Academy of Arts web site. It is the largest open-submission contemporary art show in Europe.

Debbie Evans, Head of Art, is said to be thrilled with Hannah's accomplishment!
' It is a major achievement to have just one painting accepted for such an Exhibition but to have both entries viewed is excellent. Hannah truly deserves this outstanding success'
