Stunning school summer art exhibition

taskerartTHIS YEAR’S Tasker Milward School summer art exhibition was a real success showcasing the work of the GCSE and A-Level students. This year the exhibition was held for the first time in house after 19 years being held at the Town Library. The exhibition was officially opened by Pembrokeshire artist Andrea Kelland, who gave an encouraging and inspiring speech to pupils to continue their love and interest for the subject. Andrea had the opportunity to view the work before the opening and described the artwork as “stunning”, and she was very interested in meeting pupils and discussed their inspiration for individual themes and projects studied. Andrea was particularly keen to talk to Anna Smallman, a Year 13 pupil, who is representing the school in an international school of Art in New York this summer. A new addition to the exhibition this year was the inclusion of a staff section. Fourteen members of staff displayed their artistic flair through painting, drawing, photography, textiles and model making. Other members of staff inspired by their colleagues have already thought about working on entries for next year. The tone for the private view was set by the addition of music students providing solos and instrumental sets alfresco.
