Exhibition first for Haverfordwest High VC School

The exhibition entitled "Lines of Enquiry" mounted at the Waterfront Gallery in Milford Docks is a first for the new Haverfordwest High VC School in the wider community and showcases the work of 30 GCSE and A-Level pupils. The artwork on show is either an outcome and culmination of many months of work experimenting with materials, ideas and techniques or preparatory studies taken from individual lines of enquiry.


Chris Prosser, Assistant Leader of Learning in the Expressive Arts Department explained, "In each case pupils have been inspired by a diverse and wide range of starting points from portraiture, landscape, still life and figurative work to conceptual ideas."


"Students have been vigorous in their experimentation and been inspired by a plethora of contemporary and more traditional artists. It's fantastic to see each pupil's work develop style wise and the exhibition makes for engaging viewing. From fine art outcomes to 3D work, textiles, printmaking and graphics, the work is very varied and illustrates the talent and creativity of our students "he concluded.


The exhibition will be officially opened by Andy Jones, Interim Chief Executive of Milford Haven Port Authority on 11 February when pupils and parents will be invited to see their work staged in a professional gallery for the first time. In addition, on the Private View evening the art students will be joined by musicians from the Music Department also showcasing their talents, the first of many collaborative ventures under the Expressive Arts umbrella within the school.


David Randell, the Gallery Director said, "We're delighted to have this opportunity to showcase the work of these young people and hope they will be inspired to go further with their creative studies and possibly return as young adults exhibiting with us."


The exhibition runs from 12 February until 23 February and the gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday 10.30am till 4.00pm.
