Haverfordwest High art students exhibition huge success

THE WATERFRONT GALLERY was proud to showcase this year’s Schools’ Exhibition celebrating the work of GCSE and A-Level Art and Design students of Haverfordwest High VC School.

Students gathered with their parents for a private view on Monday, February 13, at The Waterfront Gallery, most of them seeing their art and designs set out in a gallery for the first time.

Also supporting the viewing, the lovely Eliza playing the harp, another student of a Haverfordwest High from the Expressive Arts Department as guests arrived.

It was an overwhelming experience for the young men and women looking towards the next few years of education, A-levels students expressed their excitement on going to their chosen university next year and GCSE students were more than excited for the next school year to continue working creatively.

One student mentions: “It’s mad to see my work in a proper gallery”.

Another adding: “this is the best experience to see my work on the walls”

Headmaster Chris Prosser said: “Many struggled over the pandemic and found solace in their artwork. The exhibition is entitled Journeys which is very apt .

“The art department is very proud of their students’ achievements so far and look forward to seeing their journeys develop within school and beyond.”
