Art Exhibition

Please find attached an invitation to the Connections Project next exhibition
We are delighted to have the addition of another group in this exhibition 'Creative Connections' Who were started last year as a result of the success of the Connections Project exhibition
The artists are independent; rather than in care and love using creativity to express themselves and their challenges.

This exhibition will be uplifting and fun.... We all really hope to see you 

 Here's a bit I wrote about it on our facebook page....
All systems are poised for our next wonderful exhibition!
I am so excited that 
Brewery Square are helping us to host this event
The artist's work is split into two themes 
Culliford House Artists have been exploring 'Reflections' This may be reflections in water, a mirror or thinking back to a time they may have changed an action or how they may have wished something was different

The Creative Connections artists have been looking at 'Balance' - This theme is meaningful to some artists because of the physical or mental health challenges they may face. The artists (just like everyone) struggle with balance in their lives: This is explored and expressed in their work.

I am so proud of the honesty, authenticity and bravery that all the artists have shown in exploring these subjects and I am over the moon with their creativity & integrity
By sharing our ideas and challenges we can start to help ourselves and others to overcome them.
Come to the private view if you can & meet the artists....and have a glass of fizz.... xxxxxxxx
Thank you for your support 
Kind Regards
Bridget Townsend
