Bruton School for Girls is delighted to continue its partnership with Somerset Art Works and is a host venue for this year’s SAW Festival which runs from 21st September to 6th October 2019.
Artist, Fiona Campbell, worked with 50 students from across the school to produce 50 ethereal forms which interconnect with each other to create an installation in the school’s dedicated gallery space. The work is a response to the 50 year anniversary of the first manned moon landing and the structures are reminiscent of cellular to planetary forms emphasising the connectedness of nature.
Head of Art at Bruton School for Girls, Basia Chmiel said: “We are proud of the school’s strong creative presence and to be part of Somerset Art Weeks. Our students are encouraged to express themselves artistically through a range of techniques including fine art and drawing, sculpture, photography and textiles and the girls produce some outstanding work, much of which is on display throughout the school.”
Now the largest event in Somerset for visual artists and makers, Somerset Art Weeks gives the opportunity to view a range of work from emerging talents as well as established names with art displayed in over 135 locations across Somerset.
