An art exhibition is set to make a difference to Suffolk’s older people in more ways than one this winter.
The exhibition, Art Bridges the Gap, will take place at Kesgrave Arts on Main Road, Kesgrave, from December 6-20, and will display paintings from budding Suffolk artists as well as guest artists, with a percentage of profits going to Age UK Suffolk.
Maggi Hambling, a renowned international artist from Sudbury, who created the Scallop on Aldeburgh beach, has donated a painting which will be auctioned.
Theronda Hoffman, exhibition organiser and Ipswich artist, said: “I am very keen to promote art in Suffolk and to encourage people of all ages to become creative, particularly older people who often find art classes beneficial both socially and creatively. I live to paint and paint to live and art bridges all the gaps and has no age limits.”
The exhibition, now in its second year, will feature a variety of work by Theronda Hoffman and her students, as well as guest artists including Richard Bawden and Colin Slee.
