Regis’ aged care home Greenmount’s recent inaugural art show allowed residents an opportunity to showcase their artistic flare to family and the local community members.
The aged care facility, located in Greenmount, WA conducts art therapy classes fortnightly which gives enthusiast aged care residents an opportunity to express their creativity under instruction by talented art expert and painter Miriam Gardiner.
The art exhibit organised by Regis staff features artistic works in a variety of mediums such as painting, drawing, sculpture, wood work, embroidery, a restored clock and more.
Residents were excited to submit past and present works with each art piece displayed with extra care by Lifestyle Coordinator, Matthew.
The show launched with 100 enthusiastic residents and their families and community members delighted with the art show and performances by string duo Neve Strings.
The eclectic gallery was officially opened by Councillor Lynn Fisher, representing the Shire of Mundaring. Lynn gave a memorable speech about both the importance of art and creativity.
To the delight of Regis residents several suggestions from community and family members were to add the unique art show to the aged care lifestyle annual events calendar.
