Talented student’s photography displayed at Art Gallery

A talented student from Pool Academy is looking forward to seeing her photographs on display at Newlyn Art Gallery.

Chantelle, Year 11, has been invited to contribute her work to the current exhibition which starts this weekend.


Many and Beautiful Things is a collection of work expressing the moment of transition from being a child to becoming an adult. It includes work from five international artists as well as young, new artists.

Chantelle said: “I like to take photographs of people and landscapes. I started taking photographs a long time ago.

 “I like it because it is seeing the world in a different way.

“I would like to be a photographer when I am older.”

The exhibition opens tomorrow and will be held across Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange, in Penzance, from 6.30pm.

It will then be open to the public from 10am until 5pm everyday apart from Mondays and Fridays until 5th January 2019.
