The art exhibition featured work by boys from the Prep and College, as well ODs. The exhibition opened on Tuesday 5th October and was the first event of the BCW. Featuring the work of OD artists, ranging from Simon Jones (Class of 1968) to Michael Beckurts (Class of 2018).

The art by ODs on display includes works in an extraordinarily wide range of styles and approaches, such as the beautiful, poetic paper sculpture by Justin Fisk, the whimsical, dream-like paintings of Simon Jones and the strikingly naturalistic painting and drawing of trees by Ollie Marr.
