Student Amber’s work at prestigious exhibitionNovember 28, 2018
Farlington is delighted to have a student’s work selected to exhibit at the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) Rising Stars Exhibition in London next year. The landscape painting, ‘The River’, by Sixth Former Amber Li, 17, has been selected for this prestigious exhibition.
The RBA annual exhibition shows the best of contemporary representational painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. The Art Society works in partnership with the RBA to find the most outstanding work by A Level students from around the country. Amber follows in the footsteps of former students Jacqueline Zhang, Eleanor Bell, Emma Christopherson and Georgie Hamp whose work has been selected in previous years.
The Art Society collaborates annually with the RBA to provide a platform for aspiring young artists to show their work. Local Art Societies are invited to select the very best A Level artwork from students in their area and to submit that work to the RBA for consideration for selection in their Summer Exhibition in the Mall Galleries. The works selected will also be shown in an exhibition in April at the Royal Overseas League in St James’s Street, London.
Amber, who is a full boarder at Farlington, will have the title ‘RBA Rising Star’ next to her work and will be invited to attend a private viewing at the Rising Stars Exhibition next year.
Farlington’s Head of Art, Rosalyn Sprey, who teaches Amber A Level Art, commented: “Amber is an exceptionally talented student with incredible focus and creative awareness. It has been a joy to teach her and see her develop to such a high standard, and we are thrilled that this is being recognised with such a prestigious award.”
