Showcasing artwork by Peter Rowe


Adam & Peter

Cup From Above is proud to showcase artwork by Peter Rowe for the month of September. Peter, who was born with Down Syndrome, is a talented artist, illustrator, writer and presenter. He uses art to creatively express what he cannot verbally communicate.

Peter’s art is on display in the cafe and is available for purchase, with part of the proceeds going towards this month’s local community project: supporting Community Access Respite Services (C.A.R.S.) by raising money to provide one week’s worth of emergency respite for people with disabilities.

We’re also really excited to be hosting a book launch to celebrate the release of Peter’s latest children’s book Josh Goes to the Library, the fifth book in the Josh the Robot series. Make sure you get along to the launch on Saturday 27th September at 5pm, followed by our regular Community Concert at 6pm.
