The Millennium Centre exhibition to showcase Cowley Sixth Form students’ art

THE creative works of Art and Photography students at Cowley Sixth Form College will be on display at The Millennium Academy of Art in The Millennium Centre later this month.

From Monday, March 21st to Friday, April 29th, visitors can enjoy a free exhibition that will showcase the works from Year 12 and 13 students alongside three members of staff.

Spaced over three floors (lift is available), the exhibition aims to showcase the wonderful talent of young artists from the Sixth Form’s popular Art and Photography A-level courses and draw attention to The Millennium Centre’s devotion to the art and artists of St Helens.

On display will be fine art paintings and photographs inspired by the students’ interests in a variety of different art movements, both contemporary and classic.

Sue Kay, Head of Art at Cowley Sixth Form College, said: “This is the first opportunity for our students to publicly showcase their work in over two years – we are so excited.

“Cowley art exhibitions are always really popular events in the College calendar and so we are extremely proud to present our students’ efforts to the wider St Helens community.

“Our thanks go to Kirsten Tebb for all her hard work organising the event.”

Kirsten Tebb, Chair of The Millennium Academy of Art said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for both Cowley Sixth Form and The Millennium Centre to work harmoniously together.  This exhibition will hopefully encourage upcoming artists and students and give them a free platform to exhibit; also to showcase Cowley’s amazing talent and to raise awareness of our exhibition space amongst our community, therefore, spreading the word about what we do.”

The students will have their own ‘Private Viewing’ on Friday, March 25th to which they can invite their friends and family.
