Centrepieces’ annual art exhibition in Bexley’s Hall Place opens on Saturday 25th November, running through to Thursday 21st December. The 2017 exhibition – created by Centrepieces Mental Health Arts Project – is a celebration of the work created by Centrepieces’ artists and tries to offer a greater understanding of mental health to the wider public.
Centrepieces – founded in 1999 by a group of local artists – is a charity seeking to promote mental health recovery through the creation of art. The organisation affords opportunities for people with mental health problems in Bexley and surrounding areas to participate in art activities and to exhibit and sell their work.
The exhibition will be opened by Councillor Eileen Pallen, and will feature an opportunity to ‘Meet the Artists’ who created the exhibited work. All are welcome at the event, and food and refreshments will be provided.
Geoff Norris, Co-ordinator of Centrepieces, said of the work conducted at Centrepieces in the lead-up to this exhibition:
“I thoroughly enjoy the experience of being involved in the passion and creativity of Centrepieces artists - and witnessing how people change in a very positive way over time.”
