Watercolour Painting at Oakdene

Oakdene_9478_450Carre Gallery was approached by Oakdene Care Home looking for a venue to display work from a recent art project that the residents had participated in.  The gallery is very pleased to support this local project and hope that visitors will enjoy the work and find inspiration in the images and the ethos of the exhibition.  As well as paintings there are some glass pieces made by the residents under the guidance of artist Liz Pearson, a former winner of the Carre Gallery Summer Exhibition.

Oakdene Explains:

Oakdene_9469_450“We were invited by Lincolnshire County Council to take part in a project called ‘Guidelines to Art’ which is designed to make art available to everyone. We have a very talented and enthusiastic volunteer who comes in to Oakdene and we work with some of the residents to do watercolour paintings using the stencils and instructions provided by the project. The results have been fantastic and the residents are amazed at what they are capable of producing.

 With the centenary of the First World War, we challenged ourselves to paint our own versions of the ‘Poppy Field’ and ‘Unknown Soldier’ paintings.

 We are absolutely thrilled that the Carre Gallery has agreed to exhibit our work and share our success story with you, and would be grateful if visitors would please sign our visitor book and leave any positive comments which will be shared with the residents following the exhibition.”

The Oakdene exhibition is in the Bainton Room until 22 Nov 2014.
