Harrow Times: Nower Hill students to showcase their artwork Nower Hill students to showcase their artwork

Students from a school in Harrow, will be showing off their art skills at a shopping centre this Friday.

Teenagers from Nower Hill High School, in George V Avenue, have been given a temporary gallery in the former Hawkins Bazaar, in St Georges Shopping Centre, Harrow, to display their GCSE and A-level artwork.

The project is funded by the money the council won from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund, to help regenerate high streets.

The Mayor of Harrow, Councillor Mrinal Choudhury, will also be stopping by at the exhibition, which is open to the public from Friday, March 2, to Wednesday, March 28.

Student Erin Corrian-Alexis said: “I think using empty shops exhibit artwork is a great idea – I’d love to see all the shops used in this way.”

Councillor Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and economic development on Harrow Council, said: “Taking every opportunity to improve the appearance of our high streets is vital as we work to revitalise them and attract more shoppers. It’s great pupils from Nower High School are helping turn a vacant shop into a vibrant arts space.”

I'm really pleased to find that we will be getting an art gallery (however temporary) in the centre of Harrow. Looking forward to dropping in and seeing the students' work.

I agree with Sue Anderson it is a wonderful idea to make use of an empty shop to display the youngsters art work.

It is a win, win situation for the public who get to enjoy the exhibition and for the students who get to showcase their work.Congratulations to the person who came up with this innovative idea.

Perhaps artists, fashion students, potters,etc, the list is endless, in the Borough could take over empty shops for a short period of time to showcase their work and enliven our High Streets.

Wealdstone and North Harrow would benefit from this idea.
