Woodland Grove Care Home presents FORGOTTEN SHORES’ an exhibition of residents’ artwork.
‘Forgotten Shores’ is an exhibition of therapeutic artwork created by the residents of Woodland Grove Care Home in Loughton.
‘Forgotten Shores’ is an exhibition of artwork created by the residents of Woodland Grove Care Home, showcasing pieces created through reminiscence and imagination. The exhibition opens on Thursday 28th February from 7.00pm – 9.30pm at Woodland Grove Care Home, Rectory Lane, Loughton. Open to the public, this will be a chance for people to view the collection and buy the artwork in an auction, raising money for the residents’ fund at home.
Organised by Ali Kemp, a member of the Lifestyles team at Woodland Grove, the exhibition showcases beautiful, encapsulating seascapes, created through a process of reminiscence and imagination by care home residents. Ali is an artist and runs the regular art club at the home. Throughout the course of this project, each artist has been on a personal journey, enriching them with physical, mental and emotional benefits.
The therapeutic benefits of the arts are proven time and time again, offering an opportunity to lose oneself in the moment of creation. This project has encouraged residents to come out of their shells and create something precise, unique and meaningful.
