Former tutor's exhibition to raise money for charities - Jan 26-Feb 28
All Creatures Now, an art exhibition set to run January 26th – February 28th 2017 in the College's Dome building, is an exhibition of sculptures and linocuts by Jacqueline Currell. Jacky has been a resident artist in Chesterfield since 1980 and taught Art at Chesterfield College for 18 years. She has exhibited widely throughout her career.
Jacky trained at Bournemouth College of Art and was awarded the Rome Scholarship. Before moving to Derbyshire, she taught at Plymouth Art School for 14 years. Although foremost a sculptor, Jacky has become a prolific printmaker using linocut to visualise and explore her imagery. Animals and animal–like formations are a recurrent theme in her work. The motifs themselves have become a vehicle to express underlying themes of opposing forces, light and dark, good and evil, evoking an emotive response.
More recently Jacky has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease, this exhibition is a celebration of her creativity and productivity. The proceeds of all sales from the exhibition will be donated to Ashgate Hospice and Motor Neurone Disease Charity.
The exhibition opens on Thursday 26th January 6.00 – 8.30pm, every one is welcome.
