WE ARE HERE showcases works by artists in Sheffield with Learning Disabilities.   All the works featured are bright and vivid featuring neon and fluorescent colours.  The artists involved felt these colours represented their positivity as a group and through using different mediums each artist has made a piece which is personal to them.  Some pieces explore the natures of different materials and textures, whilst other express feelings or present challenges to the viewer.

Through this lively collection of works we hope to challenge peoples perceptions of intellectual disabilities through celebrating the creativity and ambition of the artists involved.

All the artists involved are represented and supported by ArtWorks. 

Artists; Elliott King, Philip Chapman, Emmie Waugh, Cathy James, Michael Costen, Tim Prestwood, Jason Johnson, Andrew Brady and Sophie Grundy.

Public Launch event: Thursday 1st November, 18:00 – 20:00, exhibitions runs until Sunday 18th November.
