Ten students from the Photography and Art and Design Level 3 programmes at Doncaster College have been exhibiting their work at a shop in Sheffield, as part of the Sheffield Showcase project.


Joseph Dyer, Fine Art Lecturer, along with Photography Course Leader, Evan Wood, and Art Lecturer, David Halewood, put the exhibition together and selected the work from first and second years and recent graduates.


Joseph said|, "The exhibition was set up to show the quality of what we do on the two courses and hopefully broaden our catchment area.


"The window is one of several in Sheffield city centre that is being used to showcase creative talent and business since shops closed due to the recession. We approached a company called The Source and they allocated us the window space."


The Sheffield Showcase is a project run by The Source in conjunction with Sheffield City Council. The project creates an outdoor gallery in the city centre, creating a better environment for customers visiting businesses still operating in the area, as well as providing opportunities for local businesses and creative individuals to contribute to the improvement of the city by showcasing their wares within the window spaces


Sheffield Councillor, Ian Auckland, Cabinet Member for Business, Transport and Skills said, "The project has already seen hundreds of artists, retailers and exhibitors showcase their wares and has definitely brightened up the city centre rather than simply having boarded up windows."
