THE artwork of former pupils has gone on display at a York school.

The open arts event at the weekend featured work by a range of artists who were former students at the Bootham School. Included in the exhibition were works by London-based Steven Appleby, who was at the school in the 1970s and is recognised nationally as a leading cartoonist.

Another of the exhibitors was Adam King. Painter and printmaker Adam is a prize-winning artist and his work is in a number of major collections. His current project is in response to Woodend in Scarborough, the family home of the Sitwell family. The work is responding to Sacheverell Sitwell’s interest in tropical birds.

Jonathan Taylor, Bootham School head teacher, said: “We have been delighted by the response to the idea of the exhibition and hope that with the opening of our new arts centre next September, we will have even more opportunities for this type of event.”

About 40 exhibits from a dozen leading artists were on display at the event.
