Artwork by some of our residents has been on display at Bristol Central Library as part of a celebration of age.
The event, run by Age UK in Bristol and Bristol City Council, encouraged people over 50 to submit artwork which would be displayed in the library foyer and entrance in a bid to break down stereotypes surrounding older people.
Visitors to the library were encouraged to pick their favourites ahead of a presentation at City Hall.
Artwork by Riversway’s residents Marianne and Sheila was included in the display, and while they didn’t win, it was great to get involved.
We’d like to say a special thanks to Riversway’s own artist, Roland, who helped the creative pair in their efforts, and to all the local artists and students that have worked with us over the years, helping to inspire and support creativity.
We also like to thank Marina and Joachin from Germany for sending through their photos of their visit to the library with Marianne to view her art work.
Everyone is looking forward to seeing the artwork hanging on Riversway’s walls now the competition is over.
