    Art in the Gardens 2020 given the green light

    5th - 6th September 2020: Art In The Gardens, Sheffield

    Peter will once again be exhibiting/demonstrating at the annual Art in the Gardens show, in Sheffield. Once a year, Sheffield Botanical Gardens are transformed into an art and craft village, where visitors can wander round and enjoy (and purchase) all the fine exhibits on display. The whole family can enjoy a day out as there are fun activities for children and lots of performing arts, all in a safe and friendly setting.

    For the very first time, Peter will be exhibiting in one of the Premiere marquees!

    Naturally, restrictions on movement and numbers will be in place, to allow for guidelines on social distancing, so exhibitor numbers haven't yet been announced, but the show normally features around 350 artists and attracts around 10,000 visitors.

    For full details of the show and opening times, check out its website here.

As always, he will be keeping a record of all his future trips while running painting workshops on cruise ships (even though, with things as they are at the moment in the industry, it's a little uncertain as to when this will happen again – in the meantime, there are vast archives of his previous cruising adventures for those wishing to dig around).

    Peter also plans to write up his adventures in his trusty campervan, and to keep a record of his major walks/sketching trips out and about, featuring route maps and downloadable gpx files (for use on Google Maps and Navigation apps.
