The Young Contemporaries 17

Chesterfield College’s students form The Young Contemporaries in first professional exhibition.

Twenty five Chesterfield College students from across the academic and creative studies courses have come together to form The Young Contemporaries 2017. The group are setting up their first professional exhibition and creative event at West Studios, as part of this year’s Derbyshire Open Arts.

They have over the gallery’s three ground floor exhibition rooms to showcase work they have created both for their courses and the project. Working with Chesterfield College tutor, Luke Chapman, the group have been learning curating techniques and the essential skills needed to present their work within a professional environment.

We are open to the public on Saturday 27 to Monday 29 May, Wednesday 31 May to Saturday 3 June, 10am-4pm.
