Join us for a celebration of Art by Shrewsbury High School at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery.

From 27th September – 4th October, an exhibition of artwork from some of Shrewsbury High School’s talented artists, past and present, as well as work produced by pupils across Shropshire in special art masterclasses, will be taking place in the Exhibition Hall at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery.

The exhibition is free to the public and not only features GCSE, A-level and Alumnae artwork, but will also exhibit work produced at workshops and masterclasses throughout the week from pupils from Schools across the County.   Head of Art at Shrewsbury High School, Mark Warner, will be hosting a Scholars’ masterclass for High School Art Scholars on Friday 29th September and their work will then be entered into the main exhibition. 

Renowned equine artist Mary Herbert from the Society of Equestrian Artists will be running a bespoke Art workshop on Saturday 30th September, free of charge, for GCSE art students from across Shropshire. Work produced at this workshop will then be on display in the Exhibition Hall from 30th September until 5th October.   This is a wonderful opportunity for GCSE pupils to add to their GCSE art work and learn some valuable skills from an established artist.  If you are a GCSE art student and would like to attend this workshop, or if you are an art teacher and have GCSE pupils who you think would benefit from this workshop, please contact Emily Brick at the details below. 

Mary, who specialises in pastel paintings of animals, will follow this masterclass with a talk and showcase of her equestrian art.  From 2 – 2.45pm, this talk is free to the public and is a wonderful opportunity to hear about Mary’s career as a professional artist, working on portrait commissions and exhibiting around the UK and to see some of her beautiful paintings.   Stay and enjoy Mary’s exhibition until 6pm.
