Felsted Schools to exhibit art in prestigious Dunmow gallery

FELSTED Schools staff and students will be exhibiting their works of art at The Aubrey Gallery in Great Dunmow.

David Smith, Benjamin Coppel and his wife, Margaret, are displaying their creations, along with a selection of pupils from the preparatory and senior schools, in the high street gallery.

Felsted has a reputation for artistic excellence and arts co-ordinator David Smith said the school is excited about the prospect of sharing their work with the local community.

“This is a marvellous opportunity for all of us to show what is going on at Felsted in terms of the visual arts,” he said.

“We are showing work by pupils from years 8 to 13 including GCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate coursework as well as work produced by their teachers who are all professional artists in their own right.

“It is my great hope that young people who are studying art in the area will come along and see what is going on in Felsted and be motivated to show their work at the Aubrey in the future.”

The exhibition runs until February 26 and is free.
