Gallery open in solicitor’s offices
ARTISTS who do not normally get a chance to exhibit their work are the star of a show at Macclesfield-based solicitors Jobling Gowler.
The firm is showcasing work by artists with terminal illnesses and learning difficulties by turning its reception into a gallery.
Its lastest exhibition features work done by East Cheshire Hospice patients in art therapy courses at the Sunflower Centre, as well as creations from people with physical or learning disabilities who are helped by the Rossendale Trust or Seashell Trust, and money from any pieces sold will be donated to the hospice and other charities.
Heather Jobling, senior partner at Jobling Gowler, said: “We are always delighted to support the thriving art scene in Macclesfield, but this exhibition gives us particular joy as we are able to showcase the considerable talent of artists who may not ordinarily be able to access and exhibit in professional art galleries.”
The Celebrating Diversity and the Arts Exhibition is open at Jobling Gowler, 250 Park Lane, Macclesfield, Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 4.30pm. Entry is free.
