Queen’s Park students score top marks at art exhibition
The annual exhibition at the Willesden Green Gallery goes down a storm
These stunning pictures are just some of the breathtaking works on show at a new exhibition created by art students.
The show is based around the twin themes of cultural identity and environment, and includes GCSE and A Level work by pupils at Queen’s Park Community School in Aylestone Avenue, Queen’s Park.
Among them is a three dimensional sculpture of a tree by Marianne Sibauld, 17, an AS Level student.
She said: “I absolutely loved it. I think the work gets better each year, it was really, really good.”

Talking about her sculpture, Marianne, who also exhibited in the exhibition last year, added: “This was the first time I have done three dimensional work. It was unusual for me but I really enjoyed it.

“I wanted to show the relationship between organic and synthetic materials.”
Being involved in the show has encouraged Marianne to set her sights on a more artistic career, and she is now considering studying architecture at university.
“I never thought I would carry on art but I am prone to consider it now,” she said.
“There were a lot of professional artists at the gallery on the night and they gave me some advice on how to improve my work. It was really inspiring.”
Alison Hook, a teacher at the school who helped set up the exhibition, said: “Every year the quality of the work gets better and better and the number of pieces shown keeps increasing too.
“This year there were more than 50 pieces of art work and it really does look like the Royal Academy’s summer exhibition.
“The fact that it is visited by the public and put on in a gallery really encourages these children.”
The exhibition runs at The Gallery in Willesden Green library in High Road, Willesden until July 23. It is open daily from 2pm until 6pm. Entry is free.
