Older people from Omagh and Fermanagh were thrilled to view a selection of their pieces on display in Enniskillen’s new South West Acute Hospital.
Exhibitors had participated in Cartwheels, an arts programme organised by South West Age Partnership (SWAP) and funded by the Arts Council NI.
The initiative provided the opportunity for participants to produce a range of art forms led by local artists including ceramics with Diane McCormick, collage & mosiac with Dara Hand and digital photography with Raymond Henshaw.
EJ Havlin, Age NI Sustainability Manager and member of the Funders Steering Group that allocated the financial support to SWAP, said, ‘The participants in this project have embraced the opportunity to try new art forms and they should be very proud of the quality of the final pieces they produced. Their work will greatly enhance the hospital environment for patients, staff and visitors’.
