Art's alive at 26th annual Aylesbury Grammar School art exhibition and Christmas craft fair

It's 26 years since Aylesbury Grammar School held its first ever art exhibition and Christmas craft fair, and preparations are well underway for this year's event.

Wednesday, 16th October 2019, 12:26 pm

The first event took place in 1993, and the event now attracts a mix of some of the UK and Buckinghamshire’s best artists as well as contributions from the school’s A’ level and GCSE students.

This year Charles Elliott will appear at the exhibit, straight from his Elliott of London Buckinghamshire studios. With Elliott of London sculptures shown at prestigious British locations like the Royal Chelsea Hospital and the Ashridge Estate, organisers say they are thrilled that Charles has added Aylesbury Grammar School to the list.

Skevi, a contemporary artist based in Tring will also display at the event. Skevi’s colourful pieces are made using resin on wood panels.
