Care Residents and Children’s ‘Art Through the Generations’ Exhibit at Cheltenham Library

Community groups including residents at local care homes, run by The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT), have created a range of artwork pieces for ‘Art Through the Generations’, a free exhibition opening at Cheltenham Library on 21 November. Contributors also include pupils at Stow Primary School and Warden Hill School, and patients from the Paediatric Unit at Gloucester Royal Hospital.

Laura Morris, OSJCT Windsor Street Care Centre Customer Relationship Manager, said:
“Having previously worked as an art consultant, I am incredibly excited to be able to host a second exhibition at Cheltenham Library. ‘Art Through the Generations’ focuses on nostalgia and childhood memories told through artwork that has been created by local children and our care home residents.”

Brenda, a resident at OSJCT Windsor Street Care Centre and contributor to the exhibition, said:
“It’s nice to have an opportunity to show other people what my hobbies are. Doing this is a good way to occupy myself but I enjoy the art club activities as well. I am looking forward to seeing other people’s art.”

Another OSJCT Windsor Street Care Centre resident Mary, said:
“I think it is a good idea to share our art with others.”

Suzanne Bruce, Warden Hill Primary School Teacher, said:
“We were delighted to work in partnership with Laura and OSJCT Windsor Street Care Centre to help put on the exhibition. It is always a wonderful experience for children to have the opportunity to display their artwork publicly within our local community.”
