A Whimsical Life- a colourful and joyful art exhibition by Bayley House artists- will be on display in the ARTrium art space at the Royal Parade Sandringham Corporate Centre until 20 December.
With more than 100 pieces on display the exhibition, that opened just days after the International Day for People with a Disability (Sunday 3 December), creates an avenue for artists to express themselves and illustrates that having a disability is no barrier to being an artist.
At Bayley House, art is one of the largest programs, with about 70% of clients who attend day programs taking part in an art related activity each week with the help of two art instructors and a team of volunteers.
The exhibition title - A Whimsical Life - was selected art is so often an expression of the imagination and dreams of the artist.
Some of the Bayley House artists are non-communicative, some have high support needs and others have physical disabilities and through a shared love of art and a desire for creativity, this exhibition has created a vehicle for the artists to express themselves.
The exhibition is free of charge and will be open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm at the Bayside City Council Corporate Centre at 76 Royal Ave, Sandringham.
