Buxton schools showcase talent in art exhibition

Secrets, Sins and even Steelworks, the latest exciting exhibition by Buxton Museum and Art Gallery has it all. Pre-pandemic, ‘Artwork’ was an annual exhibition hosted by Buxton Museum and Art Gallery that featured the very best work of talented GCSE and A-Level Art students from Buxton Community School and St Thomas More Catholic School.

Now back after two years, ‘Artwork 2021’ encompasses a significant range of artistic approaches and styles. Each piece reflects the creativity and individual interests of the young artists, with the students confidently exploring their ideas in both two and three dimensions.

The work produced by the students has continued to evolve over the years to include a diverse range of media and imaginative themes. This year is no exception, with local landmarks being drawn on for inspiration such as the Octagon and even places further afield such as a view of London drawn with ink to create different tones.

Don’t just take our word about the high quality of work this year, recent visitors of the exhibition have commented that “the standard this year is exceptional, well done!” and that there is “astonishingly good work from young artists!”.

Both schools are extremely proud of the work and believe that the visual arts have a role to play within the local community. ‘Artwork 2021’ enables a much wider audience to enjoy and appreciate the talent of these young people. With the amount of talent on show, hopefully many of the students will go on to pursue a career in the arts.

Artwork 2021 is now open until the 12th of February 2022. Entry is free.

Current opening times are Tuesday to Saturday: 10am – 5pm, last admissions 4pm.
