‘The Art of Living Together’ – Claydon House Art Exhibition

 A sunny spring day saw staff and residents at Claydon House throw the doors open to the local community as they held their first art exhibition as a celebration of the recently completed refurbishment work.

The exhibition showcased some of the best local artists – Julian Bell, Tom Hammick, Tom Homewood and Serena Penman, alongside work by six of Claydon’s own residents; Jill Blundell, May Collinson, Rosanne Cora, Mabel Pratt, Anne Reeves and Annalise West.

Many of the Residents involved have developed their art since moving to Claydon House, and the day made for a great family occasion with many friends, relatives and members of the local community attending. The fine weather allowed the event to spill out into the gardens as guests enjoyed the Bucks Fizz and cheese on offer.

Home Manager Katie Brewster said:

"The exhibition was a real success and it was great that so many people from the local community came along to support us. Our residents and their relatives were thrilled to see their artwork being displayed alongside work by professional artists. Everyone who attended had such a good day that we are already looking into hosting our next exhibition."
