A YOUNG artist is to stage her first exhibition in a museum she used to visit as a child. Alice Cornelia’s work will be displayed at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery from April 13 to June 22.

Alice, who studied BTEC art and design and art foundation at Priestley College, said: “It’s an exciting prospect for me as an emerging artist. I remember primary school and college trips to the museum so to be exhibiting my own work there feels rather strange.”

Roger Jeffery, exhibitions and interpretation officer at Culture Warrington, added: “Helping emerging artists forge successful careers in the arts is a huge part of our work here at Culture Warrington. We’re very excited to open Alice’s exhibition in April and are confident that visitors are in for a real treat.”

Alice Cornelia: Back Now, featuring a projection of a short film shot on the east coast of Scotland alongside photographic prints, will question boundaries between documentary and fiction.

After studying at Priestley College, Alice went on to Glasgow School of Art and left with a 2:1 in fine art, painting and printmaking.

“Warrington town centre is experiencing a period of regeneration. An art scene can sometimes become lost in regional towns between big cities, but the museum is keen to tackle this and I’m grateful to be a part of it.”
