Art Exhibitions

The Healthy Living Centre holds two art exhibitions every year – usually featuring the work of local artists.  Artists’ work is hung throughout the Centre and each exhibition opens with a viewing evening for Friends of the Centre and local people who wish to attend.  Visitors to the Centre are welcome to look at all the art on display – if you are making a special trip, please call Angela Dawson at The Healthy Living Centre to confirm opening times (01823 680687).

Family & Friends – from Thursday 9th February 2017.

Familyandfriends_FINALOur current exhibition is a family affair!  We are showing work by Cameo and Brightside members, therapists and the friends and family of people associated with the Centre.  Some of our exhibitors are just out of their teens – and some are into their nineties.  It’s all interesting and inspiring – and we think it’s one of our best exhibitions.  If you would like to visit and will be making a special trip, please call 01823 680687 to confirm.  Some exhibits are hung in rooms which are used for meetings and classes, and it would be a shame to miss anything.

Many of the artists have written a few words about their art to accompany the exhibition.  If you would like to read what they said, click here.
