Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EXHIBITION -

The win­ners of Page Turner – the com­pe­ti­tion aimed at chil­dren across the county – are now on show at Turner Con­tem­po­rary. As the Mar­gate gallery’s ma­jor sum­mer ex­hi­bi­tion is Cu­rios­ity: Art and the Plea­sures of Know­ing, en­trants were asked for orig­i­nal art­work on a sim­i­lar theme to dis­play along­side it. Works could be of any me­dia and size as long as they could be trans­ported and the com­pe­ti­tion was open to pupils, stu­dents and staff aged seven and above, based at Kent schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties. More than 450 en­tries were re­ceived and af­ter weeks of de­lib­er­a­tions, the win­ners, run­ners-up, highly com­mended and short­listed works have been an­nounced. Turner Con­tem­po­rary schools of­fi­cer Beatrice Prosser-Snelling said: “Once again we were blown away by the qual­ity of the en­tries to this year’s Page Turner com­pe­ti­tion. With over 450 en­tries, short­list­ing and judg­ing was dif­fi­cult as there were so many high qual­ity works sub­mit­ted. “There was a huge range of me­dia used in the art­works: from paint­ings, to pho­to­graphs, col­lage, sculp­tures, dig­i­tal de­sign and prints. We are de­lighted to be ex­hibit­ing the win­ners, run­ners-up, highly com­mended and short­listed works in the Clore Learn­ing Stu­dio.”
