Our very own Steve Lawson curates a retrospective of the work of his art class at Tadcaster Grammar School. This will mark the first collaboration between the school and the gallery since Mr T J Moon became Head of Art at the school in 2011.
A bit of background
Mr Moon, who taught our very own Ellie Moore from 2011-12, taught Steve and his class at A Level. They were taught also by Miss L Velvick. Both teachers, along with Miss C Taylor, accompanied the students on a trip to New York in February 2013 which was very much enjoyed by staff and students alike. Places visited included MoMA, The Solomon R Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2012, a similar voyage to Amsterdam was equally well enjoyed and places visited included the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and Anne Frank Haus.
The Year 13 retrospective opens for a preview night on Thursday 18th July 2013 and will be publicly open from the next day. The exhibition will end mid-August when the Gallery re-fits for the Miniatures Exhibition.
There will be highlights from Year 12 (Class of 2014) also on display.
