A Wisbech cinema is shining a light on work created by the area’s young artists with a special exhibition this week.
Art & Design students from the College of West Anglia Isle campus are exhibiting their work at The Light Cinema on New Bridge Lane.
Titled ‘Story Time’, the exhibition of work is based on books, film and folklore as part of their inspiring creative futures project.
Each student researched and developed ideas in response to a chosen book, film, story, folklore or nursery rhyme and the results are intriguing and diverse.
Inspirations include Alice in Wonderland, Lord of the Rings, War Horse, Kite Runner, My Friend Totoro, The Grim Reaper, and Humpty Dumpty which have been transposed into a rich tapestry of sculpture, ceramics, painting and mixed media.

Marketing Coordinator for The Light, Emma McGuire said “We love to get involved with the local community and giving the students an opportunity to showcase their work, is also a great way to give our customers a more local and personal experience”.
One of the young artists is Chloe Andrews, 19 from Wisbech whose two paintings are based on the novel ‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini. Speaking at the exhibition opening, she said: “I studied The Kite Runner for A-Level English and wanted to illustrate the story in a style inspired by the artist John Keane.”
