LONDON ARTIST CALLING ON LOCAL PEOPLE TO HELP CREATE NEXT ARTPIECE AT HER EXHIBITION IN WIMBLEDON IN OCTOBER
London artist Jodi Jones is bringing her mixed media abstract paintings to Wimbledon Village next month and is inviting local people to help create her next piece of art.
The four-day exhibition opens on Saturday 3 October at the Norman Plastow Gallery in Lingfield Road. Anyone who stops by will be encouraged to create a shape by drawing or using a pair of scissors, a coloured piece of paper and some instructions. By the end of the exhibition, Jodi will collate all the shapes together and use this to inspire her next painting.
The first YWA Summer Show 2015 was a curated exhibition of work produced by students from ten of our local schools, colleges and academies. The schools, colleges and academies were all asked to choose pieces of work that best represented their student’s artistic talents. The work displayed was a truly eclectic mix that not only displays the talents that are being developed within our local teaching establishments, but also showed outstanding levels of artistic merit by the individual students.
Prizes of £50 were awarded to the following students Bassam Awalli from Rutlish School, Huiya Huang from Raynes Park High School, Aimosson Scott from Cricket Green School and a best in show prize of £75 was awarded to Kodai Dow who was also from Rutlish School.

The Norman Plastow Gallery is designed to provide a unique and versatile exhibition space for amateur and professional artists, schools and colleges to display their original artistic works. It forms part of the Wimbledon Village Hall Trust facilities and is an important part of its charitable activities.
In line with the Trust’s aim to encourage local schools and colleges to make use of the gallery, I am very pleased to inform you that we have developed an arts initiative to facilitate this aim.
This exciting new initiative takes the form of an award scheme entitled YWA, which stands for Young Wimbledon Artists. We feel it is really important that students from our local schools and colleges in Merton and individual young artists or groups of young artists have an opportunity to exhibit their work within a gallery environment. Our aim is to put on regular curated exhibitions funded by the gallery and Trust, and open to the public so they can view the work produced by our Young Wimbledon Artists.
These exhibitions will become annual art event and it is our hope that they form an important part of your school or college’s academic calendar. The first of these will be a Summer Show to be held in July 15-27 with a private view to which all exhibitors their parents and teachers will be invited. The artistic works exhibited in this show will be in response to a competition set for Key Stage 3, A2 and A Level students with the theme Wonders of Wimbledon.
Until 24th may
