Collage Seascape Exhibition

March 30 @ 11:00 am - April 14 @ 4:00 pm

Looe Community Academy year 8 Art  students are bursting with creativity . Over 60 pieces of art work from year 8 students will be on display as part of a special exhibition at the East Cornwall Art Society Gallery, Ebenezer Gallery Polperro. The exhibition will run for 2 weeks and will showcase their Collage Seascape work.

The students have loved working with collage techniques and by depicting the beautiful Cornish coast they have been able to include a kaleidoscope of colours.

The students started exploring magazine collage and drew inspiration from Cornish artist Cathy Harrison of Junk mail art . These pieces allowed them to use The Cornwall living magazine as their source material and many created intricate pieces that showed attention to detail and used typography within the work.

They then went on to produce their own finish piece using painted paper that they made inspired by the fantastic work of Cornish artist Laurie McCall. They studied the artist and really feel in love with his strong designs . By producing their own coloured materials they were able to explore colour and paint application creating various textures .

The finish pieces are bold and playful and the students can’t wait to see them up on display .

The Ebenezer Gallery have kindly  allowed the students the opportunity to exhibit alongside professional artist for the first 2 weeks of the season , over the Easter Holidays . The Ebenezer Gallery is home to the East Cornwall Art Society and the students have really felt the importance of being on show in a real gallery . The Gallery have kindly agreed to 3 opportunities for the students to exhibit in the ‘Artist Corner’ in the beautiful gallery space.
