Chesterfield Museum showcases young artist’s work

Art work produced by young people from across the borough is currently being showcased at Chesterfield Museum.

Donut Creative Arts Studio (DCAS), are showcasing their paintings, collages, sculptures and music at the museum and Chesterfield residents are being encouraged to visit to show their support for local young people.

DCAS is a youth arts facility in Chesterfield that offers evening workshops and sessions in music and art for young people aged 11 to 19 years old. The theme of the exhibition is Only Time Will Tell and focuses on the past, present and future.

Councillor Kate Sarvent, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centres and visitor economy, said: “We’re really pleased to be welcoming the team from DCAS and there are some great pieces of art on display.

“It’s important that we show our support for the young people across the borough, so I’d encourage as many of you as possible to visit the exhibition. We hope that the artwork on display will leave you inspired.”

Lucie Maycock, creative arts development worker, said: “At DCAS it is our mission to support young people in unlocking their potential through the creative arts, and we were delighted to be invited to create an arts exhibition at Chesterfield Museum as it gives the young people the chance to really show off their talents.”

 “All the artwork on display comes from the thoughts and feelings of the young people at DCAS and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed creating it.”

The exhibition runs until Saturday 28 March and is open Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 10am to 4pm.
