Art @ the Station
Friday 14 December 2018

The Arts Society Ascot is the latest society to participate in the Art @ the Station initiative, started by The Arts Society Farnham. Our new exhibition of Young Art was launched at Ascot Station on 14 December 2018, working with South Western Railway.   Four local schools submitted artwork to be exhibited inside the station’s waiting room. The ages of the artists ranged from 3 to 12 years, and some of the youngest contributors attended the launch, together with parents and teachers, committee members of The Arts Society Ascot, representatives from TAS West Surrey Area, and from Barclay Interiors of Ascot, who generously sponsored the project. 

The displays will be changed every three months to enable other schools to showcase their work.

The event sparked a lot of interest and delight from rail travellers as each of the frames was unveiled. Those attending enjoyed mulled tea (as the station had no alcohol licence!) and a selection of delicious bite-sized cakes and festive chocolates for the children.

We look forward to hearing travellers’ comments directly, through our website, and from the friendly and helpful station staff.
