Private View: An Exhibition of Art by Giacomo Picca
Friday 20th November 2015
Shaw Gallery, 4 - 8 pm
The Art department warmly invites you to an exhibition of Giacomo Picca's thought provoking art work!
Giacomo is currently working in the DT department but originally trained as a Fine Artist.
We hope you can spare a few moments to enjoy a glass of wine and relax in a newly constructed environment after school on Friday.
GCE & GCSE Art & Photography Private View
The exhibition took place in June and showcased our examination students' Summer Exhibition. After this year's event, one mum commented: “We are most impressed with the show. Tomorrow we are off to the Summer Exhibition Private View at The Royal Academy but we are seriously wondering if there is any point now!”
Martha MacDonald Ceramics Exhibition
Trinity's Shaw Gallery was proud to exhibit a collection of vibrant ceramic sculptures and playful 3D work by Martha MacDonald offering an insight into the politics of the Tudors and Stuarts. Martha Macdonald’s ceramic, plaster and wooden sculptures offer a contemporary view on the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, the Raging Lords who denounced her and her relationship with Elizabeth I. The Marie vs Elizabeth pieces build on the Creep series on which Martha started work in 2007. The Weather Creeps, ancient worried looking beasts began an aesthetic in ceramic which is both beautiful and disturbing. Work in the Creep series includes ceramic Mexican Wrestler Heads, the magnificent Grande Opera Creeps, Whippet and Hare tales and other curious beasties.
Alan Smith, Director of Art at Trinity, commented: “The exhibition got off to a great start with visitors from the Trinity community and the London art world. Martha lit up the space with her imaginative sculptures steeped in the times when Whitgift was founding our original school.” Martha MacDonald said: “I am very grateful to Trinity for the opportunity to show my work in the fantastic space that is the Shaw Gallery. It is the first time that the Creep series has been displayed in its entirety and it spans different periods. I should like to thank Alan Smith and Trinity School for making this exhibition possible.”
The exhibition was open to the public at weekends from 28th February until the 15th March. It will move later in the year to the Cello Factory Gallery in London and possibly to Berlin, Germany.
On Monday 11th November 2013, the Shaw Gallery at Trinity hosted an interactive event of Art and Jazz.
The Art Jazzed Up exhibition explores how creative people react to and interpret music. The inspirational results brought the ephemeral nature of sound back into the physical realm and inspired jazz music played by Bill Mudge, Mike DiRubbo, Duncan Eagles, Max Luthert and Peter Ibbetson.
This was an international event with 80 artists of all ages from England, Wales, Scotland, Serbia, USA, Portugal, Germany, Austria, France, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Ukraine, Bulgaria and of course the Trinity community, participating. The artist Alban Low organised the artistic responses and Alan Carlyon Smith curated the exhibition in the gallery.
The event proved to be exciting and original, with Alban Low creating huge drawings in response to the live jazz music which in itself was superbly well played and mentally stimulating. The show climaxed with Mrs MacDonald, our Trinity potter and Chris O’Brien from the Upper 6th joining Alban in his drawing performance. The overall winner of the Album Art Award was Ms Chris Holley and prizes were awarded to Louie Stoneman and Lilian McCann.
