Art exhibition from young people with autism at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness

3 November 2015

Art at Cheshire House InvernessArts in Transition, which uses art therapy to transform the lives of local young disabled people with autism aged 18 to 25, is hosting an exhibition at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness throughout November and December 2015.

The project, now in its second year, runs at Cheshire House Inverness and is primarily funded through a three-year grant by The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation.

‘We are delighted to be supporting Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Arts in Transition project.

‘It is giving a great deal of pleasure, not only to these young disabled people, but to their families and carers as well.’ — Kay Jackson,  foundation manager

There will also be a selection of artwork from the late, distinguished artist, Ena Baxter for visitors to enjoy.

‘Art is one of my favourite things to do at Cheshire House. I had to get an idea from my head on to paper, and I turned it into a print of a horse — it looks lovely in the frame now and I’m very proud of it.’ — Stacy, one of the artists

‘I like to try different things in the art group, I have good ideas and I get help to turn them into something I can be proud of.’ — Daryl, one of the artists

‘We are really excited seeing how the young people on this project are developing confidence and improving their communication skills through art.’ — Freda Murray, service manager

If you're in Inverness during November or December 2015, visit the Arts in Transition exhibition.
