June 17, 2015 @ 10:00 AM
Wiltshire College Trowbridge respond to the Trowbridge in Bloom initiative currently running in the town by entering work to the Natural Word exhibition in the cells at Trowbridge Town Hall.
Previously work has been exhibited in the Shires Shopping Centre, however following the highly successful exhibition of Dying Matters in which second-year students responded to a brief given to them by Dorothy House Hospice Care, which was held in Trowbridge Town Hall cells last month Trowbridge Arts are delighted to be hosting this next exhibition in the same space.
The theme for the work is 'Natural World' and the students were allowed to pick from one of three categories for the basis of their work.
1. Hidden Places: Celebrate the beauty and mystery of secret natural places.
2. Organic Forms: Selecting from a primary basis such as plants, flowers, seed heads, shells, pebbles or rocks.
3. Miniature Plant Pot Garden.
There are twenty-one students involved in the exhibition, creating everything from paintings to fashion.
Trowbridge in Bloom judges will be assessing the work on the 18 June. There will be prizes awarded for first, second and third place, and each students will recieve a certificate for participating in the exhibition.
The judging panel comprises specialists in their fields:
Chris Kent - previously course leader for visual arts at Trowbridge College
Liz and Katie Machin from Fabric Magic
Caroline Christopher - expert in flowers and foliage
Paul Hamel - previoulsy tutor of media studies at Trowbridge College
Sarah Marshall - expert in roject design
The certificates wil be presented by the Mayor at a special prize-giving event in early Septemeber, where the students will also take part in a presentation about thier work and the processes they used.
Wiltshire College won the Chairman's cup for their exhibition last year, so the bar is high for this year's students.
The Natural World exhibition will be open to the public from Wednesday 17 June to Saturday 20 June 10-4 and work will be in the basement cells.
Access to the exhibition is via a staircase only.
