Artist Peter Griffiths will be visiting three community gardens over the course of summer 2017, taking photos and gathering inspiration ahead of his exhibition here at Persistence Works gallery in September.
Peter is a Sheffield based artist, and for this exhibition, working as a printmaker, will use the botanical forms he finds to make his work. He will be familiarising himself with the plants, flowers, fruit trees and even the weeds growing in Parson Cross Community Gardens, Meersbrook Community Walled Garden and Sheffield Botanical Gardens and making new prints from what he discovers.
There will be various events and activities associated with the exhibition here at Yorkshire Artspace; workshops, a plant swap and a talk about his work as well as the exhibition itself.
