Harrogate College students studying Art and Design have been given the opportunity to have their artwork showcased as part of the ‘Frozen in Time’ exhibition at Fountains Abbey.
The on-going partnership with the National Trust at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal in Ripon, North Yorkshire, has given many students over the years, the platform for their work to be exhibited after being commissioned by Fountains Abbey. Each year takes on a different theme and 2015 is ‘Frozen in Time’.
“Clare Sutton and Emma Manners from the National Trust at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal would like to thank all the students who presented their project ideas at the client meeting on November 12th. At this halfway point, we were thrilled by the way the students had been inspired by the brief. With interpretations including fashion, ceramics, fine art and animation, the final exhibition promises variety, skill and excitement. The “Frozen in Time” exhibition will open at Fountains Hall on December 15th.”- Emma Manners, National Trust.
The group has already pitched their budding ideas for their artwork to the team from the Abbey and gained constructive feedback in order for them to continue on the right path. Students will now put their ideas into motion reading for the exhibition opening on the 15th December 2015.
“With all the hard work that they’ve already put in to their art work and will continue to put in, I’m looking forward to seeing the best Fountains Abbey project yet!” – Johnathan Leng, Photography tutor.
