The Romsey School Art Exhibition Moves into Town

The Romsey School Art Exhibition Moves into Town

With Covid restrictions extended it looked like this year The Romsey School’s annual art exhibition would have to be cancelled. So, the Art Department got creative, determined to celebrate the artwork it’s year 11 students created during what has been a difficult year in education.

Having spotted an empty shop window in Romsey Town Centre, the new tenant Wessex Optical was contacted and they readily offered the window space for this year’s exhibition. Keen to support the school and the artistic talent of its students, Wessex Optical have very kindly offered a prize for the piece of artwork voted ‘Best in Show’ by members of the public.

The exhibition will be on display in the shop window between M&Co and Boots on The Hundred until Friday 23rd July.

Mr Kris Reilly, Head of Art at The Romsey School expressed his thanks to Wessex Optical, and said, “This is an excellent opportunity to showcase and recognise the work that students have produced in challenging circumstances – they are to be congratulated and we wish them every success in the future.”

The Art Department would like to invite the public to vote for their favourite piece by visiting the online gallery that accompanies the window display. A QR code is displayed with the artwork which links to the online exhibition.
