This new event saw the houses competing against each other to win the House Art Trophy. The Competition, generously supported by The Society of Friends of Christ College, culminated in an Exhibition and Reception in the Powell Gallery in Y Neuadd Goffa: The Memorial Hall at 6.00 on Friday 28th March.
Head of Art at Christ College, Mrs Deirdre Houghton, said: “The competition gave pupils the opportunity to show their talent and creativity, and included work from all years and from the realms of both Art and Photography. The houses took the responsibility to put up the best display,and points and prizes were awarded by year group and by discipline. These were then added up to give this year’s victorious House.”
The points awarded were as follows:
We were delighted to have Dr Ceri Thomas to judge the competition. He is the Curator of Art at the University of Glamorgan, responsible for the public art gallery Oriel y Bont at Pontypridd and also the University’s Art Collection Museum. He is an Art Historian and artist in his own right who specialises in the visual culture of South Wales since 1945.
Mrs Houghton added: “The students worked very hard and put up wonderful displays. Congratulations to them all!”
