EXHIBITION: Growing Flowers Down the Docks

Date: Monday 23 May 2022 to Thursday 7 July 2022

Location: Futures Gallery, Pierhead

Description: Working with textile artist Haf Weighton, two schools from the Vale of Glamorgan have created artworks that respond to discoveries made by a Cardiff-based botanist 100 years ago. Royston Smith was a celebrated botanist who found unusual plants growing in Barry and Cardiff docks during the 1920s. Pupils from Cogan Primary School and Ysgol Bro Morgannwg have reflected on these discoveries through artwork that features flower prints, ship sculptures and beautiful hanging fabrics.

Open to the public: Yes
