Special Rotary Art Prize Awarded

Congratulations to Chloe Allison of Parkside Community School who has been presented, by Chesterfield Rotary president Peter Barr, with the special Ian Gordon Rotary Art Prize for her outstanding exhibit at the 2017 Chesterfield Senior Schools Art Exhibition held at St Andrews United Reformed Church in October 2017.  

The presentation took place at the school’s GCSE Awards night, held in the presence of the Mayor of Chesterfield, Cllr Maureen Davenport, on Thursday 30 November 2017. This special Rotary art prize of a signed certificate and £50 art voucher is being awarded in memory of the late rotarian Ian Gordon, who provided the inspiration for the annual senior school’s art exhibition, now in its third year.  Chloe Allison’s winning art work is also being used by Parkside Community School as the basis for its 2017 Christmas Card.

Chloe’s work was described by independent adjudicator and Chesterfield artist Lynne Evans as “An outstanding piece of work with a textured/layered view of Chesterfield and the Spire.  The Art Department is commended for challenging Parkside art students with its Urban View project.”
