Sixth-form artists set for their own show

Youngsters from a Doncaster school will take over an art gallery next month to show their work to the wider public.

Danum School, Intake, has booked up the professional Mac Gallery, on South Parade, for a show that will put all its sixth-form art students’ work on display.

A school spokesman said: “All the work exhibited is by our students. They curate and promote the exhibition themselves so that they can gain some valuable experience in the creative industry.

“The students really want to promote young people in the arts in the local area.

“Last year we were at the Point and the previous year at Doncaster museum.

“It has always been a massive success last year attracting about 200 people just to the open evening.

“This year we are at the Mac Gallery A few doors up from the Point Gallery.

Students from the college even designed the invitations to the school’s opening night event.

The invites were designed by one of the school’s graphics students, Sean O’Dell, who is among those who will be exhibiting their work at the show.

The exhibition opens with a private viewing on July 5 and runs until July 25.
