The art work of Ryan Jowitt who is currently studying his AS Art at CCGS has been chosen to be exhibited at the Turner Contemporary over the next few weeks.

The John Downton Awards is an annual exhibition held at County Hall Maidstone, which showcases the best art from schools in Kent and has entries from hundreds of student from across the county. This year the award winning work will be shown at the Turner Contemporary and will give members of the public from East Kent the opportunity to see the talent that the young artists of the county have.

Ryan’s self portrait was highly commended for the under 17 category for his ‘Girl with a Hoop Earring’ Painting which he had painted as part of his GCSE coursework. Ryan was the only student from Thanet to win an award which follows the sucess of Gabriel Parker whos work was exhibited there last year.  He is delighted to see his work exhibited near to where he lives in such a prestigious venue.

Ryan’s work, along with other award winning pieces is currently on display at the Turner Contemporary and will run until late March.

The Exhibition coincides with another Art Exhibition at the York Street Gallery in Ramsgate which will showcase the work of students from CCVI and will run from Wednesday 19th to Wednesday.  Watch This space for more details.
