Inspired by Exhibition

Victoria and Albert Museum “Inspired By” Exhibition July 2011

‘Inspired By…’ is the Victoria and Albert’s Museum annual art, craft and design competition for students on part-time courses and is supported by NIACE, the National Institute of Continuing Education. It encourages entrants from diverse backgrounds and/ or different and mixed abilities to create a work of art inspired by an object in one of the museum’s collections. A friend took part in entering the exhibition, therefore invited me to attend although it was free of charge. 

I was honored to see the beautiful arts and unusual pieces! Not knowing where to start, sometimes I do get lost in certain places -  I guess being overwhelmed by people’s talents whilst observing such magnificent work! Martha Acorn Orbach -  a student at Camberwell College of Arts -  won the ‘Word and Image Prize’ as part of the part time Art foundation course. 

I really enjoyed the animation film as part of the drawings as well. Daphne Golding who made a ‘Chinese Zip’ Vase during her pottery and sculpture class at City College Peterborough was the winner of the ‘Access’ category and Diana Brothers won the ’Sculpture’ prize entitled ‘Being a Mother – It’s No Picnic’ during her Working with Glass class at the Creative Glass Guild.
