Art Exhibition & lecture

This term the Art School has already seen an extensive programme of extracurricular activities take place and our exhibition programme in The Gallery at Dauntsey’s has been extremely successful both as a social event and an educational resource.

On the 11 November, we welcomed Mike Rennie’s exhibition of paintings, constructions, collage and print entitled ‘Edge to Edge’. The opening night was a great success and enjoyed by the young and old! The private view was supported by a lecture from Mike Rennie, which many pupils from the Upper School attended. Throughout this week Lower School lessons have taken place in The Gallery at Dauntsey’s where pupils have been asked to review the artwork on display and select a piece they would like to buy. This fun and exciting activity has also given pupils an understanding of the professional practice of a working artist.

The next event from the Art School will take place on:

Monday 23 November
Art Lecture: Botticelli-Life, Art and Legend, By Jeremy Howard
William Dauntseys Room, 19.30
