An annual art exhibition showcasing the creative work of Carlisle’s Adult Day Services makes a long-awaited return after Covid.
The exhibition, which takes place at Carlisle Cathedral from Monday 17 – Monday 24 April is open to the public and is free to enter.
On display will be a range of paintings, drawings and other crafts, all produced by those who attend Carlisle Adult Day Services. As one of Cumberland Council’s in-house care providers, the service helps adults with care and support needs to live the life they choose, and provides a range of activities including arts, crafts and other skills. The long-awaited return of the annual exhibition is an opportunity to showcase the best of the work they have produced.
The artwork is available to purchase – with all proceeds going towards more art materials, such as frames, canvases and paint.
One of the adults who uses Carlisle Day Services said: “I enjoy Carlisle Day Services because I’m a very creative person and it is the perfect place to showcase my talents in art.”
Annamarie Armstrong, Manager for Carlisle Day Services said: “We have some really talented artists and we are all so proud that they have this opportunity to showcase their talent and hard work. We’re hoping that plenty of people take the opportunity to visit the Cathedral and see for themselves what they’ve achieved.”
