Upcoming Sheffield photo and craft exhibitions
Two exhibitions launch next month, one marking the end of a great photography project and the other heralding the start of a new arts and craft showcase.
The Sheffield 365 project saw photographer Luke Avery taking portraits of Sheffield people at different locations around the city on each day in 2010. You can read more about the project in this interview with Luke that I did after the project had come to an end.
You may have seen some of the photos on display in one of the empty shops on the Moor earlier on this year. The good news is that all 365 photos are to be displayed at the Workstation on Paternoster row in an exhibition next month.
The free Sheffield 365 project exhibition launches on Wednesday 4 May (6-9pm) and runs until 31 May.
And the night after, on Thursday 5 May, Sheffield craft city launches its first exhibition at PJ Taste on Glossop road. It has been set up as a rolling showcase for work from the local arts and craft scene.
The opening exhibition includes contributions from:
- James Green, linocut and etching print specialist
- Lianne Mellor, tea ware with a contemporary feel
- Jessica Flinn, maker of handmade modern jewellery using traditional metalwork techniques
- PJ taste, providing support, sustenance and creativity with locally sourced food
The artists’ work will be on show at PJ taste from the 6 May, with a launch party from 6pm on the 5 May. The event is free but ticketed.
