Abbeyfield’s Golden Gallery: Art & Soul exhibition

Dates: 16 Jun - 14 Oct 2016
Venue: Birmingham Museums and Art Galleries

Then touring to Nottingham City Arts, St Albans, Belfast

A pioneering new exhibition highlighting the therapeutic benefits art brings to older people - particularly those living with dementia and other medical conditions. National charity, The Abbeyfield Society, has been working with residents living at its houses and homes across the UK to create this stunning showcase of paintings, sculptures and textiles.

The collection includes exhibits created by an artist left virtually bed bound by complex medical conditions whose art sets her free and the dementia resident for whom art soothes and calms.
