Congratulations go to Blythe Plenderleith, who has won an art prize of a two week exhibition in the form of a pop up gallery at the Black Swan in Frome. This is a reward for her outstanding College Art & Photography work over the last two years.
This is her first solo exhibition and runs from 12- 24 October. She will be at the Black Swan in her exhibition space during many of her Art & Photography lessons leading up to the exhibition, creating work in readiness for the event opening on Saturday 17 October.
Blythe is organising a rota of family, friends and students to steward her exhibition at other times. It is a most exciting project and fantastic start to Blythe’s A Level courses.
She said “My exhibition is running between the 12-24 October. The early part of this week is setting up, and the opening day is on Saturday 17 October, 2.00-4.00pm.
I believe there is integral beauty in everyday objects, people and locations. Through using the mediums of photography and art, and a variety of materials and techniques, I am able to morph the two to allow them to be seen from a unique viewpoint. This exhibition called ‘Stolen Gems’ captures objects and individuals in an instant that would otherwise be lost. It offers an intriguing glimpse and a stolen moment into another life; another time and another dimension.”
We wish her every success on her exhibition and future projects!
