We are delighted to announce a new artist’s commission opportunity. An artist will be selected to spend time developing work at PYRUS’s walled garden on the outskirts of Edinburgh whilst also having full access to Stills’ production facilities. The commission will culminate in an exhibition at Stills from 13-21 April 2019 as part of the GreenRoom project. The winner will be announced soon!
