For the first time, students from Priestley College and Warrington & Vale Royal College will be coming together for a joint exhibition to celebrate this year’s Rugby League World Cup.
The theme of ‘Coming Together’ is multi-faceted, representing the many different countries and players coming together for the Rugby League World Cup (RLWC), our local Warrington colleges coming together to produce and install the exhibition and more broadly speaking, humanity coming together for the common good.
Students were given a very open brief, producing artwork which represented their own personal interpretations of ‘Coming Together’. The artworks include painting, drawing, mixed media and collage.
The artwork is being exhibited at Warrington Market to mark the launch of the Rugby League World Cup in October and November.
The exhibition will be open until Saturday 19 November, at the Warrington Market mezzanine.
Cllr Tony Higgins, cabinet member for leisure and community, said: “This exhibition is a fantastic way to get our talented local students involved in a landmark event in Warrington, and I’d encourage everyone to pop down to the market and enjoy this fantastic display of art.
“The Rugby League World Cup focuses on ‘The Power of Together’, so it is fitting that students have been able to capture the spirit of the tournament and the sport in this impressive, creative exhibition.”
