SPECIAL SKETCHES: Young artists provide colour to Three Rivers Jubilee exhibition

 Published on: 28th June 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A special show of artwork from children across Three Rivers themed around magic trees for the Platinum Jubilee has been held at a Rickmansworth art gallery.

More than 40 pieces of art from young people aged between two and 17-years old were on display at Artistsmeet, the Watersmeet Theatre’s specialist town exhibition space, throughout June.

The pitch given to the budding artists was “If you could grow and nourish the tree of your dreams, what would it look like and what powers would it have? How would it help people and the environment they live in?”

This was inspired by the 700 trees being planted throughout the borough’s as part of the Queen’s Grand Canopy project.

Cllr Chris Lloyd, the council’s lead member for leisure, said: “What a wonderful array of work these young artists have produced. They have all individually interpreted the brief and brought their own flare, personality and creativity to each piece.

“The exhibition is a delightful tribute to both young imaginations and the thousands of trees which are being planted to mark the Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee.”
