Nine of our RACC Art students are taking part in the prestigious Inspired by exhibition, the successful entrants are Charlotte Anstey, Tracey Dryden-Jones, Vicky Furnival-Adams, Haley Haddow, Anna Jablonska, Vanessa Ramasawmy, Sharyn Wortman, Amelia Bertram and Jenni Pink-Costello.
Over 90 new works of art and craft inspired by pieces from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s collections will be exhibited at Morley Gallery from 17 May-17 June. The exhibition showcases the results of Inspired by…, a national arts competition for adult learners originally launched by the V&A and entrusted to Morley Gallery since 2014.
The works on display include textiles, fashion and jewellery through to sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, painting, and – new for 2016 – digital media; and draw from an even broader range of artefacts for inspiration.
The exhibited works have been selected from over 350 entries from across the UK by an esteemed panel of V&A curators.
Emma jane Avery, Director of Learning and Visitor Experience at the V&A says: “Inspired by… is now in its seventeenth year and I am delighted that the Victoria and Albert Museum continues to be a part [of it]. “The exhibition always presents an excellent, high-quality snapshot of creative practice amongst adult learners and this year is no exception.”
Inspired by… is open to the public from 17 May – 17 June 2016 at Morley Gallery, 61 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7HT and entry is free. Opening times vary. For further information visit ww.morleycollege.ac.uk/gallery or call 020 7450 1826.
