Gallery open in so­lic­i­tor’s of­fices

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

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.
