In March 2018, The Silverlining Charity and Beth Morris Workshops (sponsored by Stokes Case Management) introduced ‘Silvers Sketchers.’ We are now ready to share their remarkable artwork in a dedicated week-long exhibition at Insole Court Gallery.
Inspired by the mesmerizing historical beauty of Insole Court these new friends and fellow art lovers have produced some mind-blowing art work over the last few months, and can’t wait to show the public what they have achieved. The exhibition will run from Monday 25th June to Sunday 1st July.
Some of the Silver Sketchers had never drawn before, some had to learn to paint with their left hand as they were right-handed before their brain injuries, whilst others have to re-train their brains to focus on copying the simplest of objects. The Art Club focuses on art as a therapeutic activity for health and well-being. The artistic results in such a short time of learning are pretty incredible! The Silver Sketchers weekly workshops are lively with great conversation and banter.
Private View/Press Launch
Please join us on Wednesday 27th June 2018, 6:00pm – 7:30pm, to enjoy our private viewing. During the private view, the artists will be happy to share stories of living with brain injury and how ‘Silver Sketchers’ has helped them to socialise and embrace their newfound creativity.
