As we’ve have so many fantastic entries, we’ve had a good re-think about the exhibition as we really do want to showcase each and every one! So, we have delayed the exhibition until after our Summer Show, (as was previously advertised on the flyer) so as we can take over the College and have a big and dedicated exhibition with its own Private View and prize-giving!
We will be sending out invites in the post to you or your school, but the Exhibition dates are 1st July- 21st August 2015, Monday- Friday 9:30am- 4:30pm at our Folly Lane Campus.
The Private View and Prize-Giving shall take place on Thursday 9th July 5- 6:30pm at our Folly Lane Campus. We look forward to seeing you there!
All the work will be on display during the Summer Holidays and during our Summer Holiday Workshops, so you can come and see your work on display and try out one of our exciting workshops at the same time!
Congratulations to all of the winners, and as a special thank you to all of you that have entered we have made some Young Artist of the Year badges for everyone and they will be handed out at the Private View.
Huge thanks again to Hereford Round Table, who kindly sponsored the competition.
