A mixture of our art and Japanese language students took a trip to the Pump Rooms Art Gallery on Friday February 17th to see the fantastic 'Journey Through Japan' exhibition, currently on loan from the Horseman Museum and Gardens.
From the exhibition:
'Marjorie Bell (1890-1962) was born in Edinburgh and brought up in Australia. In 1903, she left her home on a sheep station at Shelford in Victoria to travel around Japan with her mother Hester and cousin Leslie.
During their two month journey through the country they took photographs and wrote a diary. This record of their visit will be displayed alongside items from our collection of Japanese objects, prints and ceramics.'
The trip was an opportunity for students to explore the intersection between two school disciplines (language and art), and do some first hand research for their qualifications.
