Seagulls is a Kirkstall-based social enterprise and recycled paint shop. Working to divert paint away from landfill, Kate and Cat also provide training and employment opportunities for marginalised people across Leeds.

The floods on Boxing Day 2015 left their paint store and arts space under a metre of water. “Beauty from the Floods” is a stunning collection of prints based on images captured during the aftermath of the flooding. Working in collaboration with renowned screen printer Jonny Akers, Seagulls’ original photography and documentation of the water damage has been transformed into works of art which will be displayed at North Bar for a period of six weeks.

The exhibition opens on Thursday 9th Febraury at 6pm. A selection of prints will be available to buy on the opening night and for a limited period thereafter. All proceeds go to Seagulls social enterprise.

“Beauty from the Floods” is hosted by the North Art collective. For information about exhibitions across the North Bar group, please email art@northbar.com
