We are delighted to hear that Molly Needle, a current year 13 leaver, has been shortlisted to have her work featured in the Royal Academy A level summer exhibition online 2018.

Over 2,000 aspiring artists attending sixth form colleges or schools enter having their worked judged by an expert panel featuring, Royal Academician Mali Morris, curator Desirée de Chair and Royal Academy student, Hamish Pearch.

Having work featured in such a prestigious exhibition is a great achievement and we are so proud of Molly as it is a great opportunity for her to start showcase her work and showing her potential as an emerging artist.

Mali Morris a judge for the A Level summer exhibition said:

“Our thanks to every student who entered – all contributed to the excitement of this project. We were amazed by the strength of the shortlisted works, by their energy, inventiveness and sense of exploration. Every kind of feeling was here, from tenderness to rage, solemnity to hilarity, in a wide range of materials and processes. We discovered that some works related visually, others by theme; the exhibition and gallery titles [All Eyes On Me, and At Ease; Smile, We’re Watching; Squids] are borrowed from the artists – they seemed to suit, and we liked the ring of them. Congratulations to all the students and their teachers, and cheers to the schools that believe that art is still a vital subject.”

You’ll find Molly’s piece, which is entitled Mom in the At Ease category.
