Rossall Art National Success

The artwork of Old Rossallian, Charlie Fern is now on show at the prestigious Mall Galleries in London. The exhibition was opened by Will Gompertz, (BBC Arts Editor). The preview was a resounding success with guests for the evening queuing to get in.

RBA (The Royal Society of British Artists) is the second oldest arts society after RA (Royal Academy) and this is their flagship event of the year. Artists compete fiercely to have their work exhibited at the RBA where only a very small percentage of submissions are actually selected.

Charlie was one of only twenty school-aged entrants whose work was selected from thousands of submissions nationwide, not to mention that he was one of the youngest.

Will Gompertz made a point of speaking to Laura Heap (Head of Art & Design) about the technique Charlie adopted for making his ‘Apples’. He went on to enquire about Rossall School and especially the Art Department as he went to a similar school himself.

The exhibition will be running from 20th -29th February when it will be transferred to the Royal Overseas League where Charlie’s work will be exhibited along with Andy Zhao’s ‘Ancient Mariner’ drawing.

This is the first time Rossall has had artwork selected for this prestigious National Competition and we hope it is the first of many more to come.
