Last week saw Arts Edge at Locksley completely transform into a vibrant display space of student work. The Years 7-11 Art and Design Exhibition officially opened on Wednesday 12 September and showcased innovative and unique student art and product design work.
The exhibition was officially opened by Georgia Newland a past student from the Class of 2012 who is currently working at a creative agency called The Word Collective, as an account manager for L’Oreal Paris. Georgia shared her career highlights and acknowledged Ivanhoe Grammar School’s role in providing a supporting foundation for where she is today.
This year Jemima Adams, a Year 10 student, was the proud recipient of the Old Ivanhoe Grammarians’ Association encouragement award in Arts. This award is the highlight of the Art & Design exhibition and was presented to Jemima by Georgia, in conjunction with Peter Swain from the class of 1975 and who is now the vice president of the OIGA.
The Deans Art award was presented to Year 11 student Pippa Pringuer, as chosen by Dani Scaramuzzino who has a long association with the Art & Design department. In addition to this established award, this year saw the introduction of a new award focusing specifically on our product design students, the KNOG Design award. This award went to Callum Eddings, Logan Parris, Bradley McLaughlan, Julia Moorhen, Ana Jain - all Year 11 students and Year 10 student Brooklyn Hutton.
