An exhibition celebrating young artists' creativity opens at The Winter Garden, Sheffield on Tuesday 29th August, 3pm for a week.
The Young Artists Open Exhibition is a massive celebration of creativity, showcasing the talent and creativity we have in the City. A callout was issued inviting young artists aged 4-19 years from across the city to submit their artwork and the response has been amazing with over 100 pieces set to be displayed. This open invitation has seen artwork created at home, with friends, and in schools and groups and includes a wide variety of mediums, such as mixed media, drawing, painting, sculpture, and origami.
A collaboration between Ignite Imaginations, a participatory arts charity and Sheffield Healthy Holidays, this open exhibition offers a unique opportunity for young people to see their work displayed publicly at an iconic local venue.
In addition, through this partnership, Ignite Imaginations has been able to offer over 100 hours of free creativity to young people across the city this summer. Over 19 professional artists have delivered workshops in 8 schools and 4 community groups across Sheffield. As well as creating individual artworks to take home, the groups have worked with the artists to create collaborative pieces, which will also be available for viewing at the exhibition.
Luisa Golob, CEO of Ignite Imaginations said “Through our work in the community we’re lucky to be able to see the creativity of young people first-hand, our vision for this exhibition is to be able to share that creativity, skill, talent and effort with the city in a huge celebration of art. We hope this will be something the young people involved will remember and feel proud of and that will be a wonderful legacy”
Young Artists Exhibition opens at The Winter Garden, Sheffield on Tuesday 29th August 2023 at 3pm and runs until Tuesday 5th September 2023 at 3pm. Free to attend and open to all, we hope the people of Sheffield will come along and enjoy these community artworks.
