DONCASTER.- The exhibitions are a must-see for art lovers, bringing together some of the best known names in art with one of the best printmakers currently working in Yorkshire.

Doncaster Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, Councillor Bob Johnson said: "This is a great chance for people to view our fantastic sculpture collection and some wonderful lino prints. The exhibitions show just how much Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery has to offer."

'In 3D' focuses on the sculpture collection held by Doncaster Museum Service. Although only small in number, the sculpture collection contains some of the service's most important pieces including works by the great modernist sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and influential American sculptor Jacob Epstein. Other works on display include Charles Jagger Sargent's moving memorial to the fallen of the First World War, and a bust of Yorkshire cricketer Geoffrey Boycott.

Seen alongside the three dimensional works are a series of drawings and prints by sculptors, including two monumental nudes by the great English sculptor Henry Moore, and works by among others Eric Gill and Dame Elizabeth Frink.

Running alongside 'In 3D' is an exhibition of lino prints by Yorkshire printmaker Stuart Brocklehurst. Titled 'From Grains Moss to the Dutch River', Brocklehurst has created 26 images which trace the course of the River Don from its source on the moors above Penistone, to its modern day confluence with the Ouse at Goole.

Brocklehurst's work is inspired by Japanese woodblock printing techniques, with all his prints being made by hand made using traditional techniques, and in his exhibition the beautifully designed and crafted images show the River Don depicted throughout the year and in a range of weather conditions.

He said: "Printmaking is like a puzzle, and herein lies much of its appeal. For all the planning and working out that is done beforehand, there is no certainty about the finished image until, with the strange alchemy of art, it gradually appears through the mists of the previous colours".

Brocklehurst was overall winner of Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery's 'Open Art' exhibition in 2011.

On Friday 17 January Neil McGregor (Arts & Exhibitions Museums Officer) and local historian Rachel Holland will be giving a tour of 'In 3D' at 10.30am. The following week, Stuart Brocklehurst will be giving a free tour of 'From Grains Moss to the Dutch River', also from 10.30am.

Both exhibitions will run until 22 March 2014 at Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery
