A student art exhibition held throughout the shops and businesses of Sudbury town centre has been hailed a success.
Organisers of the ‘Sudbury as our Canvas’ exhibition – which runs until Friday 16th July – have spoken of their delight at how the creativity of students has been showcased to a wider audience as well as leading to an increase in footfall into the town centre.
The exhibition includes more than 300 pieces of artwork from students of Thomas Gainsborough School, past and present, and neighbouring primary schools.
TGS assistant headteacher Ed Clark said: “We are thrilled with how the exhibition has been going.
“We have received so many positive comments and it has been a great boost to both the students and the town centre.”
Around 50 shopfronts, cafes and vacant retail units have taken part in the exhibition and Mr Clark wanted to thank everyone who had supported the exhibition.
He added: “The concept behind ‘Sudbury as our Canvas’ was to bring the work of Sudbury’s young people to the local community and to make it easier for them to experience and celebrate the talent and hard work on display.
“In these strange and challenging times, it is even more important to support the creativity of our young people and find innovative ways to exhibit them.”
