Erewash Museum’s Lally Gallery is bringing in the New Year with an exhibit inspired by the borough.

The exhibition is open from Tuesday 17 January until Saturday 28 January 2023. The displayed artwork has been produced by 12 students currently attending the Fine Art Foundation course at Nottingham College, who were inspired following a visit to the borough. The showcase includes a range of creative talent in a variety of mediums including photography, paintings, sculpture and printing.

Leader of Erewash Borough Council, Councillor Carol Hart, said:

“It is always fantastic to see young talent on display and the latest museum exhibition is set to showcase even more budding artists. I am looking forward to seeing the artwork inspired by our beautiful borough and I’m sure many of our residents will pay a visit to the museum to view the exhibition. It’s certainly a great start to 2023.”

Erewash Museum is located a short walk from Ilkeston’s Market Place. The volunteer-led tea room offers drinks, lunches and sweet treats. Admission is free for both the house and gardens.
