Colours of Home exhibition showcases Ards area

A new exhibition based in North Down Museum features prints and photographs showcasing local landscapes. The art works were produced by Action Mental Health’s North Down and Ards New Horizons programme, which provides training, support and information to enable people to access further education, volunteering and employment opportunities.

The prints and photographs depict the local area and the memories the participants have of different locations. The work was inspired by printmaking sessions with local artist Eimear McCann’s Colour and Print programme, which explored personal associations with colour.

Pauline Matthew, Skills Coach, Action Mental Health said, “This exhibition showcases the great work and skills of our clients. The positive experience of engaging in arts activities enriches their lives and in sharing their work, they hope to inspire others to think or act more creatively.”

This project is part-funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014-2020 and the Department for the Economy.

The exhibition continues until Sunday 5 March.
