Phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess of new art show

Herald Express - - Down your Way -

THE new Tor­bay Art Show at Torquay Boys’ Gram­mar School was ‘a phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess’ ac­cord­ing to or­gan­is­ers.

More than 1,000 peo­ple vis­ited the event with over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive feed­back, and more than 70 artists from across the UK filled the Ca­vanna Cen­te­nary Hall with a stun­ning range of art­works in­clud­ing paint­ings, ce­ram­ics and sculp­tures.

Along­side the pro­fes­sion­als were the exam pieces from the school’s GCSE, A Level and IB stu­dents.

Orig­i­nal works by the late Robert Lenkiewicz were on dis­play thanks to the gen­eros­ity of his son Reuben, who also en­ter­tained the pub­lic with his clas­si­cal gui­tar.

Co­me­dian Harry Hill do­nated his orig­i­nal paint­ing of world darts cham­pion Andy ‘The Vik­ing’ Ford­ham, and Our Glass do­nated a stun­ning glass sculp­ture, both of which were part of a si­lent auc­tion.

Tony Black­more cre­ated a unique work of art called Draw, Score, Fold and Form spe­cially for the event.
