Youngsters and staff at Hazelwood School, for children with sensory impairments, will be guests of honour at a special preview reception to celebrate the opening of their art exhibition at Tramway.
The exhibition, with over 35 framed pieces in a variety of mediums, is the culmination of a six week project initiated by the artist Sarah Duke and funded by the R.S MacDonald Trust.
The exhibition opens to the public on Friday 26 November and will run until Sunday 12 December.
The artwork is for sale with all donations going to the school.
Monica McGeever, Hazelwood’s head teacher, is delighted her children’s artwork will be on display in Tramway’s gallery and said: “The youngsters have loved working with the artist in residence and it’s such an honour that their efforts and hard work is being rewarded with a professional art show.
“The children were encouraged to express their feelings and the results are something very special. I am so proud of them all and delighted that their families and the general public will be able to view the school’s artistic talents.”
Admission is free and Tramway is open Tuesday – Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturday and Sunday 12noon – 6pm
