Lady Waterford Bicentenary Art Exhibition

|||| |||| ||||

As part of the bicentenary year celebrating the life and legacy of Louisa, Marchioness of Waterford, the Lady Waterford Trust has invited local High Schools to take part in an art competition. The response has been excellent with Eyemouth and Berwickshire High Schools, Longridge Towers School and the Duchess’s Community High School, Alnwick, all participating. In addition the Hugh Joicey C of E First School will take part, as it is in the village of Ford and has a strong connection with Lady Waterford.

The Trust is delighted that Mrs Kate Stephenson, owner of the Watchtower Gallery in Berwick, has agreed to display the work in the gallery which will be open to the public between 12-4pm on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Saturday from 26th May to Friday 8th June inclusive.

Prior to the exhibition all the artworks, which can be any medium, will be judged by Kate Stephenson along with two other well-known local artists, Scott Robertson and Sarah Bray. Prizes, together with a certification of the award for the students’ personal portfolios, will be presented by Lady Joicey, Chair of the Lady Waterford Hall Trustees.
She said “I am thrilled by the very positive response from the schools and would encourage everyone to visit The Watchtower to view the artworks created by our local young people. I am also very grateful for the enthusiasm and support of Kate Stephenson, Scott Robertson and Sarah Bray without whom this project would not be possible.”
