Albany Academy Year 11 student Harriet Treble wowed judges and art lovers at Harris Museum in Preston with her fantastic portrait. Harriet who is a very talented artist has had her work displayed as part of the museums ‘Open Art Exhibition’. The exhibition was open to all professional and amateur artists to display their work.
Harriet who encouraged by her art teacher at Albany Academy, Mr Nisbet, entered her work in the under 16’s category of the exhibition and was delighted with the opportunity to display her work. Harriet said, “I am over the moon that my work has been placed at the Harris Museum. It was such an amazing experience seeing something I created on the wall in the gallery.”
Harriet’s work contained portraits of two of her close friends and her older sister. The painting was titled ‘Expressions’ and it is an Acrylic Painting. Art teacher at Albany Academy, Andrew Nisbet, said, “The painting is an excellent piece of acrylic painting work from someone as young as 15 and though very realistic, shows lots of creativity and imagination with unique qualities and technical skill involved. We are all very proud of Harriet and look forward to more of her art work being displayed at galleries in the future.”
The Open Art exhibition is a free event and the art work will be on display until the 9th January at the Harris Museum in Preston.
