The Sheffield Young Artists Exhibition 2023 took place last Friday and Saturday (April 28th and 29th) at Norfolk Street’s Central United Reformed Church.
Hundreds of pieces of art were on display at the two-day exhibition.
Sheffield Young Artists, which is organised by Sheffield Abbeydale Rotary, invites entries from school children aged 5 to 18 from schools right across the city. Over 600 people attended this year’s event.
Graysons is the sponsor of the Sheffield Young Artists event.
Peter Clark, managing partner at Graysons said:
“There is so much talent amongst the young people of Sheffield and it was wonderful to see so much of it on display once again this weekend. This competition acts as a great inspiration for young people who want to further their artistic endeavours and it has been an honour to be involved.”
The success of Sheffield Young Artists also inspired a similar event in Bochum which started in 2022.
Bochum Young Artists, organised Bochum’s Rotary Club, came as a direct result of Sheffield and uses the city-based format. Organiser Jörn Hartwich flew into the UK from Germany to experience the Sheffield event first-hand prior to him staging his city’s 2023 version.
Ken Marshall, who organises Sheffield Young Artists on behalf of Sheffield Abbeydale Rotary, said: “It has been wonderful to be able to return for our 18th Sheffield Young Artists event. We’ve had so much talent come through this competition over the years and the high standards of entry has definitely been maintained.”
Graysons Solicitors, which formed in 1925, has a keen interest in local culture and has been the main sponsor of the city’s celebrated Art in the Gardens event for the past four years.
