The Planters are finished!

An exciting project run by THE BACK gALLErY for LOTS funded by THT community Panel Old Trafford.

The idea came after hearing that the planters that LOTS look after on Prestage Street could do with a bit of paint to brighten them up.


The challenge was for THE BACK gALLErY art club to come up with some ideas for designs by creating a large painting made up from overlapping shapes and lines inspired by plants and human form.
