ARTWORKS by talented teens are on display in Sunderland city centre.
Year 11 students from Thornhill School were inspired by artist Cerith Wyn Evans, who has installed a large-scale public artwork in Pallion, to create their own mini masterpieces.
Artist Paul Merrick worked with the students to create the No Jumping on the Bed exhibition which is on display in Market Square, next to Milligans, until October 15.
Each artwork has been developed from an object that is significant or that represents a story that is personal to the artist.
Students also incorporated text-based elements into their work, inspired by the text that is used in Cerith Wyn Evans’ installation, Permit Yourself.
Cerith’s artwork, which was commissioned by Great North Run Culture and Locus + has been hung at a warehouse, unit 91, in Alexandra Business Park.
It is open for viewings Tuesday-Sunday from noon to 6pm until October 23.
