THE ART OF THE VIOLIN

In collaboration with The Newark International School of Violin Making

3.5.22 – 28.5.22

Newark on Trent is home to the largest violin making school in the UK, with an international reputation for excellence, training successful makers from throughout the world. The School of violin making is part of a wider school of Musical Instrument Crafts, including woodwind, piano and guitar schools. As of 2017 the college runs a 3-year BA (Hons) degree in Musical Instrument Craft. It also runs a one-year Foundation Course and evening courses.

The School of Violin Making and Restoration has strong links with the international violin trade. Experts in the field act as advisors to the course as well as visiting to give lectures. Graduates can be found in many of the top workshops around the world as makers and restorers of the violin, viola and cello. Situated in its own building in the centre of historic Newark on Trent, the School is itself an international community with many social and cultural opportunities. 

Gallery 6 have asked a selection of artists to depict, in their own style, this beautiful instrument.  The artists include Susan Pollard Gillespie, Haidee-Jo Summers, Sarah Sharpe, Ann Pollard, Scott Tetlow, Darren Stevenson, Sarah Watson, Liz Goulding, Anette Holt, and Susan Isaac.
