Sawtry VA Art students Olivia Marshall and Alex Bolton voted ‘Best in Show’ in East Midlands A Level Art Competition
The Northampton University Art competition is in its fourth year and the competition is aimed at sixth-form students from across the East Midlands, and aims to find the region’s brightest young artistic talent. The highly prestigious competition is always very popular and draws incredible artwork from many schools including many private schools and sixth form colleges. Sawtry students have won prizes in every previous year but this year was the first year when 2 students were chosen as ‘Best in the Show’.
Judges from the Art Society could not decide upon an overall winner and believed the consistently outstanding portraiture artwork and also amazing photography work from both Olivia Marshall and Alex Bolton deserved to be awarded ‘best in show’. They were awarded £100 each. This is a tremendous achievement and deserved recognition for both students who work very hard and continue to astonish us with their exceptional talent.
