Blooming fabulous artwork on display in Sheffield

Have your say

A Sheffield exhibition celebrating plants and growing is being launched tonight.

Plant on the Wall will comprise sewn wall hangings, dreamlike ink drawings and paintings of sinuous tree roots and colourful vegetables.

Artists from across Sheffield have contributed to the exhibition, which is being held at the Old Junior School, South View Road, Sharrow.

The launch, organised by Ignite Imaginations and Grow Sheffield, is taking place this evening from 6-9pm.

Luisa Golob of Ignite Imaginations said: “Having artwork on the walls of this vital community building gives emerging artists a huge audience for their work through the hundreds of people who use the building each week, and will hopefully raise money to support family art provision in the area.”

Ignite Imaginations are now managing the wall space at the Old Junior School, with exhibitions changing every few months.

The plant-themed artwork will remain on display until April.
