Past Present Future
A Celebration of the Art of St Mary's Calne

Past Present FutureBy 5.45pm on Tuesday 3rd November there was a palpable buzz outside the 20th Century Theatre in Westbourne Grove, as people began gathering to visit the art exhibition, Past Present Future, celebrating the Art of St Mary’s Calne.

The first exhibit, on view in the ground floor window space, was a life size Elephant made of wire wood plaster and rope created by Hannah Falk, which had people literally stopping in their tracks. Thereafter expectations were surpassed everywhere you looked.

Past Present FutureApproximately two hundred guests passed through the door on the first night and were treated not only to a dizzying array of talent, ice cold prosecco and the most incredible party atmosphere, but also to an inspirational and heartfelt speech by Sir Antony Gormley, who awarded his prize of best piece of work by a senior girl to Gina Hope.

Held over three nights in total, parents, old girls, current girls and even potential parents were all utterly wowed by the art on display produced by Calne girls past and present; several of the pieces were sold and further commissions taken.

Special thanks must go to Clarissa Fortescue who generously gave up her evening to photograph the first night, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who participated; Thank you!
