We are pleased to announce that Phil Entwistle has been
awarded the inaugural "Rollits Art Award 2012" at the School of Art
and Design, Hull College, for his painting `Deltaic
Phil is on a Professional Practice Programme which offers a
range of courses for mature students in the 19+ age category. His
paintings explore the physical processes of the Earth`s surface, in
particular the geology of northern England. This painting of
Deltaic Sandstone is an example from the Yorkshire Coast and is the
latest in an increasingly ambitious series of works.
The standard of work at the College was of such a high
standard that the work of four other students, Viktor Staskevicius,
Elizabeth Hayes, Karolina Badas and Fiona Caley, were also selected
as `Highly Commended`.
The School of Art and Design is located at Park Street and
it`s excellent onsite facilities include multimedia graphic design
suites, purpose built workshops dedicated to 3D/spatial design,
jewellery design and ceramics. Specialist Art and Design facilities

"We have been working with The School of Art and Design,
Hull College on a variety of projects for some time now and we were
delighted to sponsor this award to highlight the achievements of
the art students at Park Street. We viewed the work of all of the
students - everything from ceramics to textiles - at their end of
year show and the standard of work impressed us so much that we
found it very difficult to choose the winner.
"After hours of deliberation, we finally chose Phil`s
painting as our eventual winner, and recommended four further
pieces which we nominated as `Highly Commended`.
Isabel Willock Head of School, School of Art and Design,
Hull College commented:
"We are immensely proud of the quality of work being
produced by Phil and the other students at the School. External
recognition for their efforts in the form of the Rollits Art Award
2012 is something which will help them to stand out from their
peers in what remains a competitive marketplace."
