Celebrating Creativity:

Spotlight on Russell High

Russell High has produced artworks that focus on recycling and environmental issues as part of their annual Matric Art Exhibition. Some of these creations have won the school prizes in both local and national art competitions. It is in this light that as a pilot project, the Gallery has awarded Russell High an opportunity to exhibit in the Schreiner Gallery as resident artists while working on current projects. This exhibition will run concurrently with the Midlands Matric Art Exhibition.

As part of their exhibition, learners from Russell High and the art teacher, Alana Leigh, will talk about their various projects involving the use of recycled materials. The intention of the walkabout is to remind audiences to be environmentally conscious and to encourage creativity through recycling.
