The Caledonian Club Winner
Posted: Thursday 20 April 2017
The Art Department are delighted to be able to share that Rachel S (S6) has been awarded a prize for her painting “Fruit & Veg” by The Caledonian Club in London.
Earlier this year we were invited to submit 2 pieces of work to the Scottish School’s Exhibition at The Caledonian Club in London. The Private View was well attended by Club Members, alumni and school representatives, and the art on show was well received by Members, all being positive and impressed with the quality and diversity of the work. Ian Gale from Lyon & Turnbull and well- known contemporary Scottish artist Alison Watt visited the exhibition several times before announcing the winners.
Later this year Rachel S (S6) will visit the National Gallery of Scotland, including a tour of the Joan Eardley exhibition, and she will have lunch with the National Gallery Senior Curator, Alice Strang. Her painting will also feature in the next edition of the ‘Caledonian’ magazine.
