Brain Art competition 2018
From Brislington to Blagdon, primary and secondary schools from across Bristol and Somerset took part in the competition. Children submitted two and three-dimensional works, in a range of media and styles. They included structural representations and more unusual interpretations, including several pieces that explore mental health issues and brain disease.
The competition judges were sculptor Dallas Collins RWA, mixed-media artist Dr Sue Pickering and RWA’s Learning and Participation Manager, Joel Edwards. All were amazed by the diversity of the imaginative responses and the children’s ability to combine creativity with scientific curiosity.
The judges were so impressed with the work that they decided all entries should be on display in the RWA gallery. The exhibition of Brain Art takes place from 6th - 25th March 2018.
The winning and commended Brain Art entries will be on display at the Bristol Neuroscience Festival from the 22nd – 24th March 2018.
