St Mary’s Catholic School students curate exhibition of their A-level artwork at South Mill Arts





Students and staff at a Bishop’s Stortford secondary school were welcomed to South Mill Arts to exhibit their artwork.

St Mary’s Catholic School quartet Lilly, Kristen, Irene and Abigail, accompanied by teachers Miss Nairn and Mrs Morgan-Wren, joined museum staff at the South Road venue to curate an exhibition of the best pieces from Year 13 art students’ A-level portfolios.

The group worked through the curation process – selecting, mounting and presenting their pictures. On the day, the students discussed what it means to curate an exhibition and debated the grouping and position of the work.

The event was part of the museum’s Young Curators scheme, an education and volunteer programme to open the world of curatorship to young people. The initiative is part-funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

The exhibition on the first floor Art Space at South Mill Arts is open until the end of August. Admission is free. See www.southmillarts.co.uk.
