We are proud to announce that artist and Fine Arts College art tutor Suzanne Holtom is hosting her new art exhibition at the college gallery.

The exhibition is a collection of new paintings and drawings, entitled ‘fortune and folly.

“A painting is a sensory time capsule, a visual and tactile container of the past. Times are uncertain, old antagonisms are resurfacing and a painting can condense all this fortune and folly, desire and resentment in a new imaginative space.”

The exhibition runs from 7th February until 5th April, Saturdays 11am-4pm and Wednesday afternoons from 1pm-4pm, or by appointment.

25% of all sales go to charity.

Fine Arts have been collecting for the homeless charity ‘Crisis’ through a JustGiving page and a collection box. Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. They help people directly out of homelessness, and campaign for the changes needed to solve it altogether.

Due to the amazing generosity of parents and staff, the campaign was incredibly successfully and we raised over £2000 to date. Our JustGiving page was one of the most successful of December. Out of 25472 fundraisers, we were in the top 3%!

Christmas truly came to Fine Arts yesterday with our annual Evening of Music and Drama.

The evening kicked off with awards for the Lower School Self-Portrait Competition, and the Vienna Photography Competition. This was followed by a variety of music and drama performances from students of all years. Each year we are blown away by the standard of talent, and it was agreed that this year was one of the most impressive.

Students collaborated to perform a cornucopia of music and drama pieces. Our musically talented students included an enchanting cellist, pianists, singers, and an entire jazz ensemble. Many students performed their own musical compositions. There were some moving and raw drama pieces with incredibly mature deliveries, and light relief was found in a fabulous comedic excerpt from Jim Cartwright’s play ‘Two’.

The evening ended with candlelit Christmas carols in the courtyard, accompanied by a brass band and plenty of mince pies.

It was the perfect way to welcome the Christmas break.

Fine Arts Students Visit Vienna

Our second visit to the wonderful city of Vienna coincided with the centenary of the deaths of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele marked by several exhibitions. Egon Schiele died very young and his exhibition at the Belvedere Palace is a poignant journey through his brief but dramatic career.

The most famous painting in the Palace is Klimt’s Kiss which has acquired a ‘Mona Lisa-type’ notoriety and unfortunately is always surrounded by eager photographers rather than connoisseurs.

However, the main cultural event in Vienna this autumn is a historic exhibition of Pieter Bruegel at the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Three quarters of his oeuvre is on display in a beautifully designed show which feels strangely luxurious despite his earthy medieval subject matter.

Vienna boasts many gorgeous Art Nouveau buildings, most notably Karlplatz Station and the Secession Building, rechristened the Ferrero Rocher building by one wag because of its golden sphere. This year’s trip included photography students as well as Fine Artists and as we walked everywhere, they could enjoy and record the city’s photogenic vistas and skyline.
