Chester care home residents draw crowd with art exhibition

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

RESIDENTS at a Chester care home showcased their creative sides with a special art exhibition.

The team at Care UK’s Deewater Grange, on Chester Road, opened its doors and invited family and friends to attend the inaugural event with piece created by more than 20 of the care home's residents.

A range of techniques and styles were displayed including drawings, paintings, frame collages and crafts, all based around the theme of autumn.

Also featured were breathtaking landscape paintings from resident artist 93-year-old Maurice Sutherland. Maurice, who discovered painting after he had to take time off work following an operation when he was younger, finds inspiration in the places he’s visited, which is reflected in his art – including scenic views of the Lake District.
