Visitors had the opportunity to purchase the artwork on display through our student-led entrepreneurial project, RICH Entrepreneurs.
Part of the exhibition included an awards ceremony with the Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, Councillor Lisa Blakemore, celebrating a number of student achievements.
A Level Architecture students were awarded for their involvement in designing way-finders for Heathfield Recreation Ground in Twickenham as part of the Richmond Council Friendly Parks for All project.
Students studying the UAL Extended Diploma in Art and Design were presented awards by Lynne Reeves, Chair of the Friends of Turner House, for their product designs for a visitor centre. Jerusa da Silva, Hannah Shams and Jonas Sackey were the winners of these awards and Maisie Evans Winter and Zayneb Faik were also commended for their designs.
Lynne spoke highly of the students work and commented “we continue to be impressed and delighted by the quality of the students’ response to the life and work of JMW Turner.”
The final award of £100 art vouchers was presented by Steel and Industrial Managers Association (SIMA) to Level 2 Art & Design student Iranea Clarke whose design was chosen to be their new logo.
The department also received a cheque of £500 which was used for photography equipment for the department.
