The Bitter and The Sweet Exhibition
Saturday 28th September - 10.00am to 5.00pm
We are presenting an eclectic mix of work in mixed media: paint, textile and collage. Some exhibits are work we have made on our own, others have been created out of our partnership during the time I worked as an Anna Chaplain, supporting older people in Alton.
Our Exhibition theme: The Bitter and The Sweet emerged out of our conversations around the challenges faced by older people and their families as they approached the end of their lives.
We devised several projects that brought older people and their families together with children and it was exciting to see many magic moments, shared one with another. We concluded that this theme was relevant whatever our age and worth exploring through our artistic endeavours.
Jane Austen’s home in Chawton is nearby and worth a visit too although you have to pay and our Exhibition is free!
