Graysons Solicitors is the premier sponsor for Art in the Gardens and commissioned local illustrator Alan Pennington to capture the event as thousands of people prepare to attend in a few weeks’ time.
The artist has been a permanent fixture at Art in the Gardens for the past five years alongside hundreds of others who sell and display their work at the popular event.
Alan Pennington has been growing in popularity in recent years. In fact, Sheffield’s own Dan Walker even commissioned him to do a piece for his Strictly Come Dancing partner, Nadiya Bychkova.
The artist will be accompanying Graysons Solicitors in the premier sponsor’s tent as well as helping judge the firm’s popular children’s art competition.
The 20th anniversary of Art in the Gardens takes place on Saturday and Sunday, September 2nd and 3rd, with a preview evening on Friday, September 1st.
Peter Clark, managing partner at Graysons, said,
“As it’s the event’s 20th year and our fifth year of sponsorship, we thought we’d like to do something a bit different to mark it. Alan’s designs have always adorned our promotional giveaways and we are delighted with his birthday celebration piece.”
