An exhibition of our flood art and accidental art

It was not the best start to 2016 but from every disaster springs new opportunities. The flood came at a time when we were becoming better at documenting our enterprise and had been posting images on Instagram of accidental art under the #accidentalart.

The flood gave us plenty of opportunities to create some visually beautiful images all created accidentally, as a buy product to the waste or residue of what’s been left behind. Over the year we have been working with renowned screen printer Jonny Akers to produce a series of screen prints based on our flood and accidental art. The show will be the first exhibtion to be held in our new art gallery and will be officially opend by Tom Riordan, Chief Executive of Leeds City Council.
