Students in Hessle have staged their own creative celebrations as nearby Hull starts preparations to host the Turner Prize during its year as City of Culture in 2017.
Our North region has once again supported the annual display of art and design work by around 100 pupils from Hessle High School, studying for qualifications in GCSE and BTEC art and A-level textiles, photography and product design.
Their work was displayed at a recent Art for Art’s Sake exhibition at Country Park Hessle, where the visitors were joined by Julie Hubbard, Linden Homes North sales manager.
She said: “We are delighted and proud once again to support this initiative which provides a wonderful showcase for the very talented art and design students we have in Hessle – and great prequel to some of the amazing art which will undoubtedly be vying for praise during the Turner Prize.
“The work on display during the evening was of an incredibly high standard, and it was a real treat to be able to share in the success of these students who we hope will go on to bigger and better things.”
Sue Walker, technician from the art and design department at the school, added: “We were very grateful to Linden Homes North, who have a well-known and respected presence in Hessle, for their generous support once again.”
