Seven people who we support at Westleigh House and through our Supported Housing service, all successfully exhibit their work at the Pyramid Art Exhibition, with the support of Culture Warrington.
Alan Ward and Paul Hughes - both keen photographers wowed visitors to the exhibition with their beautiful photographs. Alan is a keen photographer and has a particular interest in countryside and the railways, whilst Paul who uses a range of mediums, has a favourite subject - a dog he fondly refers to as the Sergeant.
The artists; Paul Larking, Sylvia Capel, Walter Denis and Mark Sim are displaying a collection of art, in a variety of styles. Paul is a dedicated artist with many years of experience, where some of the others are new to the world of art. Mark Sim is an excellent impressionist artist and does fabulous interpretations of paintings from famous artists such as Manet and Monet.
Walter is a keen gardener and uses this as inspiration, whilst Sylvia is exhibiting an interesting picture of a castle with a beautiful landscape and trees that come alive.
The team supporting the artists living at Westleigh House - part of local charity Warrington Community Living’s family of services – are really happy about the fact they can display their work and get the recognition they deserve.
The display is part of a larger display of around 20 paintings created by people recovering from mental ill-health and addiction are on show at the Pyramid.
