Natasha recently completed an MA in Curated Practices and is well known for her work on the large mural opposite the Interchange.

She assisted Nomad Clan in creating a Doncaster heritage themed art piece that has quickly become beloved amongst residents.

This will be Natasha Clarke's first solo show.

“Visitors to the gallery will be able to see fresh new artwork from one of Doncaster’s rising stars,” Kim said.

“Natasha’s creative practice often highlights themes around identity politics and dual heritage.

“Her works mostly reflect her own ethnicity of Black Caribbean and White British, along with the experiences of growing up in two different cultures.

“Black female beauty and power has been a common thread in Natasha’s portrait pieces.”

The exhibition titled ‘A Journey of Self’ looks at the artist's personal development as a young, female, bi-racial, working class, Doncaster artist and curator.

The show will launch with an opening party on November 20 at 5pm.

There will be food, drinks, live music and of course art.

It will remain open until December 4.
