An exhibition by four island of Wight artists, at Michael West Gallery. Students showed their responses in the form of their own artwork.

For two years, four artists have been making site visits together to coastal locations and visits to eight island beaches, around the Isle of Wight, UK. The result is an eclectic exhibition made cohesive by linking the marine environment to humanity. The work communicates experiences of loss and bereavement, conflict between the undeniable beauty of the coast and evidence of decay, thoughts about permanence and transience, and the rythm and inevitability of change.

Artists Annik Cullinane, Judes Crow, Mary Flynn and Gerry Price created opportunities for young people to engage with the ideas and process that inform the exhibition Me and You three; 2 years, 4 artists, 8 beaches in the Michael West Gallery.

Groups of young people from three local Isle of Wight’s schools visited the exhibition.

These students showed their responses in the form of their own artwork. This took place in the Learning Curve Gallery at Quay Arts Centre 12th June – 24th July 2010.

Over the summer a changing collection of work has unfolded creating a developping exhibition by students from Clatterford Tuition Center, Cowes High School and St George’s Community School.

Clatterford students are 12 to 15 years old, who find attending school difficult for various reasons. They are taught in a centre which aims to get them back into mainstream schools.

St George’s Special School students have varying learning and physical differences and were age 12 to 13.

Cowes High School students’ age 17, are studying for an exam in art.
