TONY CARTER (1943-2016)

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Tony Carter, Principal of the Art School from 2000 until 2014. Tony passed away on Sunday 13 November at the age of 73.

In his distinguished years as Principal, Tony led the Art School with an acute sense of its very particular ethos and increasingly distinctive position within the fast changing landscape of art education, and firmly established it as the respected institution which it is today. He was a man of profound integrity with an exceptional mind, which he brought to his role. For this and much else, the many students who studied here during his tenure, his former colleagues and trustees will always remember Tony with gratitude and affection.

At this time, our thoughts are first and foremost with Tony’s wife Wendy Smith, and his family and close friends.

There will in time be the opportunity to pay due tribute to Tony the man, the artist, teacher and colleague. In the meantime, the Art School is happy to receive and pass on any messages in Tony’s memory.

Below is a picture of Tony in his studio this past August, which we believe is how he would like us to remember him – as the artist which he was, first and foremost.
