We are excited to announce the winners of this year’s Open Art Award competition.
The overall winner for 2022 is Upper Sixth student Alice Bradshaw whose striking pink cat painting (left) delighted the Art Department judges.
The Lower School runners up were First Year Delali Akpoblu for his drawings and a joint entry from First Years Aras Ozler and Oliver Michael who created a Cosmic Catastrophe Fanzine! The Upper School runners up were Fifth Year Ethan Thorne for his sculpture ‘Hope’ and Lower Sixth Former Tanay Sabharwal.
The Family Winner 2022 was from Ayanda Ncube and Rufaro Chamoko, sister and mother of student Thabo Ncube, for their watercolour paintings.
The staff awards go to Teacher of History Mr Hutchings for his woven tapestry and Maintenence Assistant Mr Hatton for his ink drawings.
The entries were judged by the Art Department and Ms Stevens-Lewis says, “The quality of this year’s entries has been remarkable. It is especially pleasing to see such a broad range of different creative skills within the school community. Well done to all involved.”
If this has piqued your interest, a private viewing of the winning artwork will be held from 4.30pm-7.00pm on Wednesday 25 January. The event will be in conjunction with an exhibition of Laurence Watchorn, our current artist-in-residence and 2017 alumnus.
