A fantastic new exhibition by our Artist in Residence Jessica Gilbert is now being displayed in the Wheelhouse Gallery until 28 June, showcasing her work.
Artist in Residence, Jessica Gilbert tells us more:-
“The exhibition is made up of three series; The Holiday, Home and The Party- three things I need in my life right now. The outcomes are visual representations of feelings, thoughts and conversations. All of the imagery used is salvaged from a household waste centre in Grimsby, my home town. The work is mainly collage based and a few ideas have been translated into books and zines.”
Director of Art Mrs Elinor Brass said, “Jessica’s work is thought-provoking and provides an insight into the processes, projects and conversations that have emerged from her own reflections and observations as well as her work with the students. The exhibition also shows students how accessible and relevant galleries are in the development of their own practice.” Elinor continues, “It is a great display and Jessica has had had some wonderful feedback. Jessica has had a busy and successful year at Oakham School including creating the Lower School window installation and we are delighted to announce that she will be continuing at Oakham next year as a teacher in training.”
