The exhibition, the first of a series of biannual exhibitions, is sponsored by FDR Law and showcases work from talented young student artists, who are destined to become part of the rich cultural future in Warrington.
Entitled Interpret, the exhibition introduces audiences to a range of artistic work based around and inspired by the rich diversity of Warrington, seen through the eyes of creative young artists. Art and Design students pursued the theme through a mix of mediums including print, portrait, animation, textiles and large-scale paintings.
A private viewing of Interpret took place on Thursday 2nd April and attracted art enthusiasts including the Chairman and CEO, Charles Agar and Oliver Burton from FDR Law as well as Nichola Newton, the new Principal at Warrington Collegiate.
Nichola says, “We have some seriously talented young artists studying at Warrington Collegiate. The quality of art work exhibited by our students here is outstanding and testimony to their creativity, talent and fantastic work ethic. Students receive excellent tuition and support from staff in the Arts Centre who are justifiably proud of the work exhibited here. The Arts Centre at Warrington Collegiate goes from strength to strength and I am enormously pleased with their achievements. Anyone thinking about studying art should come along to this exhibition. We could be exhibiting your work next year! Contact us to find out more about art courses at Warrington Collegiate. This is a great opportunity for our students to showcase their work in the splendid surroundings of the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery. We are grateful to the Museum and Culture Warrington for their support and to FDR Law for their sponsorship. We certainly hope our partnerships with them will thrive”.
Charles Agar, Chairman at FDR Law, said, “I was delighted that FDR was able to be involved with the Warrington Collegiate with the launch of the art exhibition at the Museum, the art really is of an outstanding quality and I totally recommend everyone to take the time and pay the exhibition a visit. The ongoing partnership between FDR and Warrington Collegiate is very exciting one for the future and beneficial to all”
