Elderly Art Group Exhibition
The artistic talents of some of Darlington’s older residents will be put in the frame at a special exhibition.
The display follows the growing popularity of art classes at two of the borough’s extra care housing schemes, Dalkeith House and Oban Court, which support older people to live independently.
Six residents, with ages ranging from 76 to 95, regularly take part in the classes which are run by local artist and volunteer Alan Cooke, with the help of the Community Fund to cover the costs of materials.
Now their work is to go on show for all to enjoy with an exhibition, organised by Creative Darlington, in the Town Hall from Monday 23 October until Friday 15 December.
