Official Launch of 2010 Young Artist Exhibition
"The Jewel in this Rotary clubs' Youth Programme and one of the highlights of the year" – just two of the descriptions President Peter Stabb used at the launch of the Plympton Rotary Club's annual Young Artist Exhibition launched on the 25th March at Plymouth City Airport.
Now in its fourth year, this year sees students from 8 schools in Plympton and Plymstock displaying 72 exhibits. Peter went on to say "Rotary supports young people in art, music and travel, and it is a great pleasure to have an opportunity once again to work with schools in Plympton and Plymstock".
The exhibition was officially opened by Deputy Lord Mayor Jonathan Drean who was delighted to do so and said "It is wonderful to see such great talent that we have in our young people of Plymouth. It is very apparent that our city is blessed with young people showing enormous ability and flair at such an early stage in their lives"
Plymouth City Airport's Mike Coombes commented: "It is always our great pleasure to host the annual Young Artists exhibition here at Plymouth City Airport. The artwork is a fantastic demonstration of the talent of Plymouth's youngsters, and passengers travelling through the airport always enjoying browsing the exhibition before they fly off."
This annual event is proving to be very popular not just with the school children and their parents but also the teacher at the schools involved. "The Rotary Club have again excelled in their support for art in our schools and the combination of Secondary and Primary Art is a delight to see. The students and their parents are actively involved in choosing their favourite work from each age category and all students receive a certificate with their own art work printed on it. Thanks again to the [Plympton] Rotary Members and to Plymouth Airport for their great hospitality and hard work in mounting this wonderful exhibition" said Stuart Stephens, Head of Art at Ridgeway School.
"This event brings young artists and their families together to enjoy and celebrate their achievements. It also showcases to the wider community the high quality of work that is being created by our pupils in Plympton and Plymstock Schools. It is a privilege for the Rotary Club of Plympton to have this event , now in its fourth year, in our annual programme" remarked Plympton Rotary club member and co-organiser of this years' event, Clare Thomas.
