The Flower 90 art exhibition, showcasing original artwork by six residents from our Meadowbank Dementia Care Centre in Omagh, will run from Monday 4 - Friday 8 October 2010 at Omagh Library.
The care home residents started painting as part of a previous 8 week project funded by The Big Lottery through the Live and Learn Programme run by National Museums NI, in conjunction with Age NI and Plumbridge artist Martin McGrinder.
Bernie McDaniel, Manager of Meadowbank, said, ‘The art project really benefited our residents. It is incredible to see the stunning work being produced thanks to Martin’s continued help. The level of concentration, focus and attention to detail needed by the residents is tremendous.’
All the artists have painted floral themes and portraits in oils onto canvas. Meadowbank Residential Home is owned and managed by Age NI and provides best practice care for older people with dementia.
Meadowbank’s vision is to preserve the basic rights of older people with dementia, and to retain choice, privacy, independence, dignity and fulfilment in later life.
Meadowbank is a safe, domestic environment where the quality of life of each resident is paramount. A special launch of the art exhibition is being held on Wednesday 6 October in the Omagh Library.
