It's The John Leggott Art Foundation Exhibition! (Part Three!)

Here is the final instalment of the exhibition, I hope you enjoy our last foray around the gallery...


Keir wanted to create a sense of mystery and claustrophobia with his display.
His atmospheric photographs celebrated the work of Agatha Christie.






Not only did Keir produce a beautiful book and series of photographs, he also created a stunning set of embroidered mixed media images.



Emma's work explored the issues of body image and eating disorders.
Her sculpture was so impressive and well constructed.




Emma also explored a wide range of disciplines, including 3D, film and painting.


I loved the shadows cast by these fragile and delicate wire sculptures.



Megan explored the issue of self love within the LGBTQA+ community.
She created a fantastically illustrated zine and a range of promotional merchandise.




I love these stickers so much!



Saskia created a stunning display of machine and hand embroidered portraits that explored the complex issues of the many layers within our personality and persona.



The embroideries were strung up from the ceiling to the floor, and as the display was carefully lit, it looked so dramatic in the private view.



Mirante's beautiful textile designs celebrated the culture of Thailand, and challenged how designers should respect the belief systems that they obtain design inspiration from.



I love Mirante's fashion illustrations and flair for pattern design.







Emma's designs and stunning textile wall hangings were inspired by the natural world.
As you can see, her display was carefully co-ordinated and evoked the sources of inspiration perfectly.



Just look at these gorgeous cushions!



There was so much work involved in these pieces, the textures were just beautiful.




Chloe's Amazonian women greeted the viewers on entry to the exhibition.
Girl power!


Chloe researched classical goddesses, and addressed the issue of female empowerment in contemporary society.




As you can see,  they proved to be the perfect backdrop for photo opportunities.
It was brilliant to see so many past students, (here's Anastasia Tasou striking a pose!)


And here are the artists themselves...

Congratulations Class of 2018, you are just fab my chickens and I will miss you all very, very much.

Thank you again to all the staff at John Leggott College and Cafe Indie for all your hard work, and thank you to all the friends and family who supported, cheered on, and helped these wonderfully talented artists and designers.

  1. I just went to see the re coloured Yellow Submarine Beetles Movie and Chloe's pictures remind me of the graphics in that film. Always mind expanding to go to an Art Exhibit. I'm sure you had fun.
