Invitation to an Exhibition

Last Monday I was at Leigh Community Art Group where our Chairman, Trevor Gardner, read out an invitation from a group run, to assist the integration on people with mental health issues and learning difficulties, into society. They are called "The Spinney Group".

Leigh Community Art Group is proud to be associated with an endeavour such as this. They are holding an open exhibition on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week to show , amongst other formats, their artistic creations.

The exhibition is being held at 14 Walmesley Road, Leigh, WN7. The premises used to be a printing place and is situated a few steps away from Sacred Heart Catholic Church. The Spinney is a mental health treatment centre situated in Atherton.    The contact person at this exhibition is called Jan.

The hours of opening are as follows:-

Tuesday   this Tuesday 17th March – between 1300  – 1500 hrs ;

and on Wednesday , 18th March between 10 – midday and 1300 – 1500 hrs.

Art is a very useful and productive tool in such groups so if you have a few minutes spare why not pop along to  and show your support which would be very much appreciated.

Finally watch this space for a planned series of articles showing the stages in making a beautiful pastel drawing of a well known classical painting.
