Two art and design degree students are exhibiting their work in an outside gallery in the heart of the city of Chelmsford.

Toni-Marie Harrold and Tamsin Bartlett have been selected to show their work on the Gallery Outside in central Chelmsford.

Both students are showing, in turn, four images that are 2m x 1.2m each and positioned on the BHS outside wall of Meadows Shopping Centre, overlooking the River Chelmer.

Toni's exhibition, called A Small Reminder, started on Monday 18 March and will be shown until the end of April. Her four images, created by stitching onto netting overlaid on mono-prints, are called Catch A Breath, Slow The Pace, Flash A Smile and Enjoy.

Tamsin, from Black Notley, near Braintree, will see her work displayed from the beginning of May. The graphic designer used Photoshop to create images of Chelmsford landmarks that have resonance with her.

Pryle Behrman, Course Manager of the Art & Design Programme at Writtle College, said: “It is a testament to the originality and creativity of Toni and Tamsin’s artworks that they have been selected for display on such a high-profile location in the heart of Chelmsford.

“Within Writtle’s Art & Design degrees we encourage our students to think about how their practice relates to the wider cultural world beyond academic life from the very start and I feel that both Toni and Tamsin have risen to the challenge of presenting their work within such an interesting and unusual public space with great imagination, creating works of striking beauty.”

The Gallery Outside is Chelmsford’s first dedicated outdoor gallery space, offering visitors to the heart of the city a programme of exhibitions of specially-commissioned artworks.
