Students photographs featured in online exhibition

Solihull Editorial 8th May, 2024   0

TALENTED Solihull photographers have had their work included in a special exhibition.

The three Visual Arts students from Solihull Sixth Form College Photography were chosen to have their pieces shown in the Sixth Form College’s Association (SFCA) annual Exhibition.

Every year, the SFCA invite sixth form colleges around the country to enter artwork from their students for inclusion in the online exhibition.

This year’s theme was A Sustainable Future and artwork was also accepted from young people in Sweden.

Seren Jones was one of the students whose work was exhibited.

Her piece, called A New World showed a Flower made of rubbish with a butterfly sitting on top.

Leah-Marie Scarlett’s artwork called In This Together and incorporated graphics and photography together to deliver messages about protecting nature and recycling waste.

Meanwhile, Anfel Kesseir’s piece was entitled The Changing Landscape and it depicted the clash of the natural world with man-made structures and pollution.

The artwork was shortlisted thanks to an internal competition run with the Natural Sciences department, which has seen all three pieces displayed in the Natural Sciences department at College.

Creative Arts curriculum leader Zoe Maksymiw said: “Sustainability is something that our young people care a lot about, so this was an excellent theme for them to produce artwork for.

“We got some fantastic original work and it was difficult to narrow down our choices to just three pieces. I’m delighted to see their talents on show in a public exhibition.”

The SFCA exhibition can be viewed here.
