Students' artto go on display
As part of the bicentenary year celebrating the life and legacy of Louisa, Marchioness of Waterford, high schools were invited to take part in an art competition.
The response was excellent with Eyemouth and Berwickshire High Schools, Longridge Towers School and the Duchess’s Community High School, Alnwick, all participating.
In addition, Hugh Joicey C of E First School in Ford will take part.
The Lady Waterford Hall Trust is delighted that Kate Stephenson, owner of the Watchtower Gallery in Berwick, has agreed to display the work between May 26 and June 8. Prior to the exhibition all the artworks, which can be any medium, will be judged by Kate, along with artists, Scott Robertson and Sarah Bray.
Prizes, together with a certification of the award for the students’ personal portfolios, will be presented by Lady Joicey, chairman of trustees.
She said: “I am thrilled by the very positive response from the schools and would encourage everyone to visit the Watchtower to view the artworks created by our local young people. I am also very grateful for the enthusiasm and support of Kate Stephenson, Scott Robertson and Sarah Bray.”
