Our residents went wild for the Exhibition of Wildlife Art at the garden centre in Burton!
The three-day show in Chester High Road featured some of the world’s most talented wildlife artists and was introduced following the closure of the successful National Exhibition Wildlife Art which ran for 25 years. The aim of the exhibition was to promote and display outstanding examples of wildlife art from both professional and amateur artists and make it accessible to all.
Over fifty selected artists had their work on display and residents were able to browse the stands and panels, talk to the artists in person, and watch them demonstrate their skills live.
Liza Millington, our Home Manager, said: “The aim of this activity was to give an opportunity to our residents to engage and communicate with the wider community and provide a stimulating activity to get them inspired and prompt a creative discussion."
“Just as the body needs physical exercise to keep fit, the brain needs mental stimulus to stay active too. There were some remarkable pieces of art at the Exhibition of Wildlife Art and our residents thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
