Participants in the Time out programme in AMH New Horizons Fermanagh are showcasing their art work at an exhibition in Grangewood Hospital Gransha Park, Derry. The Time Out programme which is funded by the Big Lottery through the Western Regional Impact of Alcohol Portfolio Project introduces people to a range of artistic medium including sculpture, glass work, and photography. The programme also supports people who are concerned about the damaging role which alcohol play…s in their life through 1-1 support, group work, and training programmes.
At present , 20 people are attending the programme. The Time Out exhibition includes our Kaleidoscope collection ,a stunning contemporary art installation worked in various hues of shaded glass, inspired by the artists lived experience. Shards of broken glass, symbolising a shattered life, are gently reconnected, piece by piece, creating breath taking art work mirroring the colourful journey of recovery. Sculptures are hand made from recycled cotton or linen, which is treated with textile hardener, and can be used indoors and outdoors – all sculpted by Time Out people!
