EVERY year Hedfas is invited by The Henley College and The Piggott School in Wargrave to view the artwork of their sixth-form students.
This summer members of the Hedfas committee selected works from six students for submission to a national competition organised by the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies and the Royal Association of British Artists. These works included paintings, sculpture and intriguing mixed media collages.
Judging usually takes place in the autumn but in the meantime these artworks provided a wonderful display at a Hedfas meeting held at Phyllis Court Club in Henley on September 15.
The Hedfas members were fascinated by the background inspiration and creativity of these works.
For instance, a sculpture called Iron Man had been created from discarded materials while a mixed media collage had the theme of quails’ eggs painted on to light bulbs in a surrealistic manner. The students whose works were chosen were Robyn Heary and Frederick Redman, from The Henley College, together with Isabel Abrams, Tom Dale, Isobel Harmer and Isabella London, from the Piggott School.
All the students received a cheque for £50 and a certificate from Hedfas president Lady Camoys.
