All of the work shortlisted for the Royal British Artists Exhibitions in London is now displayed in ‘The Drawn From Youth 8 Art Exhibition’ at The Fylde Gallery, in Booths, Lytham. The preview night was extremely well attended and there were many guests including Joanne Martin (organiser of the London exhibitions), who was the guest speaker. There were also Mayors from Wyre, Blackpool and the Fylde, who were extremely impressed by the high standard and variety of the students' work.
AKS students attended with their families and Robert Mill received the overall top prize for having his work selected to go on show in London at the Royal British Artist's Annual Exhibition and at both the Royal Overseas League and the Mall Galleries.
In addition to the overall win of Robert’s, Wen Shiqi received one of the three judges selection prizes on the night with her acrylic still life painting. This was another terrific achievement, adding to the ongoing success of the AKS Art Department.
The exhibition is now open to the public until Thursday 19th April.
