The finale of the event will include an excerpt of Artistic Director, Stephanie Zaletel’s f l w r s (szalt’s evening length project to premier in Summer 2015) adapted to, and enhanced by, the unique gallery space.
About MorYork Gallery and Clare Graham: Clare creates art, recently “Recycled Art” or art made from discarded materials.
