Farley Arts Trust Awards | Working in Partnership with Momentous

A Celebration of East Sussex Schools and Colleges Visual Arts

As a proud sponsor of Farleys Art Trust, Momentous were invited along to the Farley Arts Trust Awards awards evening 2017 at Farley House in East Sussex.

Working in Partnership with Farleys Arts Trust Momentous came up with a new and innovative award ‘Art on The Move’. The winning artist would not only appear in the catalogue and the exhibition but would also have their winning piece of art featured on the side of a new Momentous Fine Art vehicle for 2 years.

On Friday 13th October 2017, Mark Costa-Rising, Group Sales & Marketing Director and Shane Lewis, Operations Manager of Momentous along with The trustees at Farley Arts Trust awarded Charlie Legh-Smith from Uckfield Community Technology College the ‘Art on the Move Award’ for her GCSE entry called Companionship.

Charlie commented, “I enjoy the art of something different and original, which inspired me to use small human figures, made from glue, that reflect humanity in a boy’s dog. My overall piece was inspired by Samuli Heimonen and his use of giving a deeper, surreal meaning to his paintings, thereby giving me the idea to create an image that reflects the relationship between a young boy and his dog.”

Congratulations to Charlie, and we look forward to working with Farley Art Trust committee and seeing far more inspiring art in the years ahead.
