Open Up Sheffield Christmas art exhibition being held this week

Written by Caitlin Eckley

The creative talent of 17 artists in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire is being showcased this week at a Christmas art exhibition.

It is a free event at DINA, Sheffield and the work on display includes oil paintings, photography, printmaking, and digital media.

The event has been organised by Open Up Sheffield, the open studio events group who provide a platform for artists to showcase their work and skills with the public.

Miranda Trojanowska, Vice Chair for Open Up, said: “It’s a beautiful exhibition.

“It’s in a beautiful place as well, and it really showcases the incredible artwork that we’ve got in Sheffield and surrounding areas.”

Semi-professional, non-professional and amateur artists can apply to have their work displayed at the Open Up exhibitions.

Open Up displays the work of artists from around South Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

Each year in May, artists open up their homes or studios for members of the public to see their work process.

It features over 100 artists and artwork comprised of jewellery, ceramics, textiles and oil and acrylic paintings.

Artists can hold workshops and demonstrations in their homes to showcase their artistic talents.

Frances O’Connor, 59, is displaying her photography at the exhibition in DINA.

She said: “The work rebounds off each other in the exhibition and that is really positive.

“We tried to put things together that complimented each other so there was a kind of synergy between the works which I think added to it.”

The Christmas art exhibition is taking place on Wednesday 8th December to Sunday 12th December, with a ‘Meet the artists’ event on Saturday from 2pm to 4pm.
