Now in its second year, ‘RMS Works on Paper’ is an exhibition from the pupils at The Royal Masonic School for Girls that features work from girls currently working towards a GCSE or A Level in Fine Art, Textile Design or Photography.

The opening reception for this eclectic and tactile exhibition of work is taking place at the gallery prior to the school’s dance performance in the Watersmeet auditorium. Students and staff, family and friends and new faces are all welcome along to see the artwork be unveiled on its first day in the space.

The exhibition aims to showcase the outstanding preparatory drawings, prints, embroidery, models and photographs that often hide within the pages of lovingly crafted sketchbooks and folders. The focus is normally on the outcome but as all creative people know the ideas are discovered and recorded in a variety of methods on paper before they are brought more fully to life on canvas, garments, print, wall hangings or in 3D form.  

Councillor Chris Lloyd, Lead Member of Leisure said “I am delighted that Three Rivers is working in partnership with the Royal Masonic School to put on Works on paper. An exhibition not to be missed”
