Farley Arts Trust Awards | A Celebration of East Sussex Schools and Colleges Visual Arts
As a proud sponsor of Farleys Art Trust, Momentous were invited along to the Farley Arts Trust Awards evening 2017 at Farley House in East Sussex.
Working in Partnership with Farleys Arts Trust Momentous came up with a new and innovative award ‘Art on The Move’. The winning artist would not only appear in the catalogue and the exhibition but would also have their winning piece of art featured on the side of a new Momentous Fine Art vehicle for 2 years.
On Friday 13th October 2017, Mark Costa-Rising, Group Sales & Marketing Director and Shane Lewis, Operations Manager of Momentous along with The trustees at Farley Arts Trust awarded Charlie Legh-Smith from Uckfield Community Technology College the ‘Art on the Move Award’ for her GCSE entry called Companionship.
Charlie commented, “I enjoy the art of something different and original, which inspired me to use small human figures, made from glue, that reflect humanity in a boy's dog. My overall piece was inspired by Samuli Heimonen and his use of giving a deeper, surreal meaning to his paintings, thereby giving me the idea to create an image that reflects the relationship between a young boy and his dog.”
Congratulations to Charlie, and we look forward to working with Farley Art Trust committee and seeing far more inspiring art in the years ahead.
About Farleys Art Trust:
The Farley Arts Trust draws its inspiration from the artistic legacy created at Farleys House in East Sussex where many of the most significant Surrealist and Modernist artists lived, worked and visited. These comprised Roland Penrose, Lee Miller, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Paul Eluard, Henry Moore and other leading artists, poets and writers from the UK and Europe.
This outstanding cultural legacy provides meaningful links to many of the key figures and creative ideas of the 20th century and a valuable insight into one of the most momentous periods of our recent cultural history.
Extending an understanding and dissemination of this unique artistic legacy involves the Trust in developing enterprising programmes and Arts and Education projects to further public engagement and appreciation. These focus on cultural and artistic opportunities for young people, local communities and others in the South East Region and beyond.
