A-level Art Exhibition and Alumni Evening 2017

The Altrincham Grammar School for Girls annual art exhibition and alumni evening was held on Tuesday 20th June. It was a superb opportunity to celebrate the work of their talented A level students and an opportunity for students who graduated from as long ago as 1956 to mingle with the proud parents, the students and other invited guests.

It was a beautiful summer evening and the work matched the lovely weather with a varied and rich selection of styles full of quality and creativity on display. Phil Doyle director of Manchester based architects 5Plus was on hand to award the inaugural 5plus AGGS “Creativity in the Arts” prize to a deserving selection of students. 5Plus are keen to promote the importance of the arts and are already involved in similar schemes with the Manchester Art School. Voted the best architectural practice in the North West for the last two years, they are keen to recognise up and coming talent. There was certainly no shortage to choose from in this exciting and diverse exhibition.
