Former students’ artwork is snapped up
A former student from SGS College has become a successful photographic artist with her most recent work being exhibited in Newark Park.
Jacki Storey started her artistic career studying Access to Art at SGS College as a mature student back in 1996-97. She then went on to study at the University of Gloucestershire where she gained a BA, MA and then finally a PhD.
Since then Jacki has undertaken many different assignments including; project managing the building of a Camera Obscura at St Augustine’s Farm in Arlingham, Gloucester and carrying out a commission for a pinhole photography project called ‘Ghosts in the Attic’ for the Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley, Glos.
Jacki has even been back to deliver lectures at her former college, SGS Stroud School of Art, on her own practices and has had her work exhibited nationally.
Now Jacki’s work is being shown at Newark Park, National Trust, Ozelworth, where she presents ‘Through the Pinhole’ an exhibition of images taken at Newark Park over recent months. The photographs are taken with a long exposure pinhole camera, creating a series of intriguing images. It shows Newark Park in a very different light.
Jacki comments: “I was very nervous and didn't really know what to expect joining the Access course at SGS College. It was challenging, exciting and life changing and opened up a whole new world for me in so many ways. The tutors were brilliant, and I made many lasting friendships with fellow students.”
The event is running from now up until 2nd November in the exhibition room from 11am-5pm Wednesdays to Sundays (normal entrance charges apply).
