IT looks like Doncaster teenager Jamie-Ben Turner has been busy with the coat hangers!

The 18-year-old from Carcroft has created a series of wire sculptures, depicting cartoon faces.

His work is being exhibited in the latest art exhibition at The Point, the headquarters of Doncaster’s Darts community arts group.

Jamie-Ben is one of 19 art students from Doncaster College and the University Centre, Doncaster, who have put their work on display.

Bosses at the college are hoping they will help form a new wave of successful artists in the borough.

The exhibition at the South Parade venue is called Opening the Studio Doors and runs until May.

Helen Jones, arts development manager at The Point, said: “Behind the doors, there is an eclectic mix of work including a stunning slip cast sculpture, mixed media street art, illustrated embroidered tiles and wire head sculptures which reflect the diverse interests of the students taking part.”

Doncaster College art lecturer Mike Bunn is delighted the work is going on public display.

He said: “It’s great to be able to showcase and celebrate the students’ work here at The Point.

“What’s striking is the high level of quality across a wide range of courses and level of student.

“It’s a credit to their commitment, enjoyment, dedication and ability.”

The students taking part in the exhibition are: Paula Elward, Catherine Curran, Emily Boardman, Beverley Hoskins, Natalie Gelder, Max Beales, Rachel Kitchen, Corrie Davis, Rachel Hodgson, Emma Walker, Jade Evans, Daniel Guest, Olivia Williams, John Kelly, Luke Clark, Rachel Alderson, Alicia Hopkins, Josh Corkhill and Carl Grey.

They are all at different stages of study – from BTEC Level One to degree level.

The seven-week long exhibition ends on Wednesday, May 11.
