Queen Anne's Exhibit at the Foundation Art Exhibition 2013

Tuesday 10th December 2013

Pupils from Queen Anne’s School, Caversham, have once again exhibited in the seventh annual Foundation Art Exhibition in London.  The art exhibition ran from Wednesday 20 November until Thursday 28 November at The Prince’s Foundation Gallery, London. To officially launch the exhibition, a private view was held on Tuesday 19 November, which was attended by over 200 people, including parents, governors, Queen Anne’s Alumni and current exhibitors.

Painting by Palin Ansushinha entitled ‘Inside, Outside, In Between’

Students exhibited a wide range of work in two and three dimensions. Pupils representing Queen Anne’s included Palin Ansushinha, and her painting ‘Inside, Outside, in Between’, Miri Park, Grace Kneifati, Beatrice Wilkin, Hannah Marshall, Verity Taylor, Rarinthorn Wanavit, Jordan Brudenell, Miri Park and Nuo Xu.

For some of the Queen Anne’s pupils exhibiting, their artwork proved to be financially rewarding as pieces such as ‘Zig Zag’, a framed study in paper by Miri Park, ‘Inside, Outside, In Between’ by Palin Ansushinha and the oil painting ‘Light on Water’ by Nuo Xu were purchased by visitors to the gallery, which is based in Shoreditch.

Mr Mike Norcross, Head of Art at Queen Anne’s School said,

“There was a genuine air of excitement and a real buzz at the Private View and it was lovely to see Queen Anne’s Alumni, exhibitors from previous Foundation exhibitions, mixing with the scholars and current exhibitors. All in all, it was an exhilarating experience for the girls.”

This highly successful and well supported exhibition, organised by the Grey Coat Hospital and United Schools’ Foundation brings together the best work from the five foundation schools in the group including; Queen Anne’s School, Emanuel School, Sutton Valence School, The Grey Coat Hospital and Westminster City School. It is aimed to offer students who are the potential artists and designers of the future, a unique chance to experience the excitement of participating in exhibiting their work in a professional context, with the added possibility of selling their work to the public. The quality of the work is of an extremely high standard, so high, that in fact the event has on many previous occasions been mistaken for a mixed show, by professional artists.
