Young Keynsham artists show off talents at Bristol exhibition
Published on: 05 Feb 2016
Two young artists from Keynsham got the chance to see their work go on display to friends, family, teachers and the public at a Bristol show.
Pieces by Uti David and Gabriella Day were among an impressive exhibition of work by creative arts students from St Brendan’s Sixth Form College at Bristol’s Paintworks Event Space.
The show featured artwork from their A level coursework, including graphics student Uti’s accessory packaging designs, featuring logos for his K-Lush range and eye-catching images.
Meanwhile Gabriella showed off her fine art work in which she focuses on movement of the figure, capturing fleeting moments that would otherwise be over too quickly to appreciate.
After his A levels, Uti hopes to study for a degree in graphic communication at Chelsea College of Arts while Gabriella wants to complete a foundation degree before going to university to further her art and design studies.
The show was opened on Thursday, January 28, by artist, research fellow and president of the Royal West of England Academy Janette Kerr and ran until Sunday, January 31.
Madeline Woolfenden, vice president at St Brendan’s Sixth Form College, said “The students have once again managed to exceed all possible expectations.
“The quality of their work along with their creativity is astounding and makes all of us at St Brendan’s so proud.”
