Fresh Ground Pepper is an event series for the development of emerging art.

We seek to provide a forum for artists of all mediums to experiment, collaborate and grow within a supportive community. FGP creates shifting guidelines and obstructions through which artists can explore fresh ideas, discover alternative styles and invent new forms.
