Artist bringing inspiration to London students

The Gerald Moore Gallery in Mottingham is reaching out to Eltham College students and the wider community through its Artist-in-Residence programme

Posted by Julian Owen | November 04, 2017 | School life

The latest artist to join Mottingham’s Gerald Moore Gallery for a year in residence is Stephanie Farmer, an Oxford University graduate in Fine Art.

As part of her residency Stephanie will work with current Eltham College students in workshops and support them in putting on their own exhibitions. In addition to this the gallery hosts a calendar of workshop events throughout the year for the community to come and take part in making art, with Stephanie leading and facilitating a number of them.

She will work with Year 12 and 13 students to create large drawings, responding to the theme of place and the School building. These will be exhibited in the gallery and grounds of the School with tours arranged for people to view them. Stephanie says : This will be a great opportunity for the students to talk through their processes and continue to bring art to the forefront of the School. Art plays a crucial role in the school curriculum and can really complement subjects and form a creative way of thinking.

Stephanie is currently exhibiting her work at the gallery, along with five other emerging artists, in an exhibition called ‘Full Scale Model of a Day’, on display until 11 November. The works display an interest in the idea of removing an object from its original form through folding, cropping, mirroring and model making.
