Partnership for Students and Yorkshire Law Firm

Share this page:

Students at Thomas Rotherham College have a new showcase for their work - the Sheffield offices of Yorkshire Law firm Keeble Hawson.

This new venture follows on from the successful art viewing evening in February 2009 opened by local artist Joe Scarborough.

Paul Trudgill, Managing Partner at Keeble Hawson and TRC's Emilie Scholey have joined forces to launch an 'Art in the Workplace' initiative. This will allow the next generation of talented young artists from the college to display their work at Keeble Hawson's St James' Row offices in the heart of Sheffield.

Artist Daniel Barnett, who has achieved several successes in recent years, including the Princess Diana's Award and selling work alongside Damien Hirst, is exhibiting his work in one of the larger conference rooms. There has been much interest in Daniel's exciting exploration of 'nature' and there are already a lot of enquiries being made about this sample of his work.

The plan is that over the coming months, students from a variety of disciplines including Graphic Communication and Fine Art will display their work throughout the firm within the conference rooms, corridors and reception area with the work being rotated on a frequent basis. This system will allow the majority of Art students at TRC to have their work professionally displayed.

Emilie Scholey of TRC said this week:

"The Students are extremely excited at the prospect of displaying their work in an external setting, which will allow for a wider audience to appreciate their ambitious work."

"As many of the Art students continue studying Art at Degree level, it is a fantastic opportunity for students to practice how to reflect and use feedback from staff and clients of Keeble Hawson. This will enable students to evolve as Artists and sharpen their negotiating skills in selling their work."

Paul Trudgill, Managing Partner at Keeble Hawson added:

"This is a project we are very keen to support. It will help the students showcase their work and reach a wider audience, with all the potential benefits that may bring such as sales and perhaps the opportunity to take part in other projects and exhibitions."

Further information on the artists and the project will be available in the reception area at Keeble Hawson, Old Cathedral Vicarage, St James' Row, Sheffield.
