The art of success

Around 50 visitors attended the recent art exhibition featuring the combined works of 13 clients from Hawthorn and Noble Park AgeWell Centre art groups.

The exhibition, at the Hawthorn AgeWell Centre recently, was a huge success, with artists Maurice Gleeson and Inge Raun even selling a number of their paintings. The range of art works on display included portraits, landscapes and everything else in between.

The artists mingled with the visitors, with many explaining the meaning their art works had to them. A delicious Devonshire Tea completed the event.

“The artists had a wonderful time and felt a huge sense of pride and accomplishment,” says Susanne Walker, Project Lead - Social Connection Group. “It’s going to be an annual event, with the exhibition held every April.”

Penelope Anderson, Team Leader Social Connections, Centre Based Groups says there was a great vibe and a “solid buzz of conversation” with people chatting about art, why they love expressing themselves on canvas and more.
