Art and design students from Truro and Penwith College stood out in a national hunt for work to go on display at two top London art galleries.

Six of the college’s students had their work selected out of 348 other pieces of art submitted by 89 schools from across the country.

Their work was chosen by the Royal Society of British Artists and will now take pride of place in month long exhibitions at both the Lloyds Gallery and the RBA Annual Show, Mall Galleries in February and March 2016.

The six students who have gained the title RBA Scholar include: Isabelle Armstrong with Cornish Land, George Clark with Rhythms, Joanna Lillie with Apple Blossom, Scarlett Bunce with Repeating the View 3, Rose Miller with Sister with Blue Bowl and Abbie Trevorrow with Day Dreamer.

“I am very shocked and excited to be chosen by the RBA. I can’t wait to see what all our work looks like hanging in the galleries. My work is about how women become part of the furniture and chained to their domestic lives,” said Rose Miller.

Isabelle Armstrong’s piece, Cornish Land, is not only being displayed in the two London galleries, but has been placed on the title page for The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies website, a partner with RBA.

Isabelle said: “I was extremely honoured to have my art work chosen for this exhibition. I depicted the same subject matter, the view from my art class window, continuously over the course of a year causing that particular landscape to grow increasingly significant to me. I'm therefore pleased that a highly personal work has been recognised and displayed.”

To mark the students’ achievement, they have each been given a RBA Scholars certificate, an award which all winning entries receive.
