Phenomenal success of new art show
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.
