Kate McDougall, Day Services Manager at Miroma says “The art exhibition is the fruition of a year’s work and the artwork produced never ceases to amaze. It is always wonderful to see the great sense of pride and achievement each person feels seeing their artwork as part of the exhibition.”
All art works are created by individuals who attend Miroma and explore the theme ‘Art and Soul’, a reference to the expression and inner creativity which comes from the heart. All of the artists are supported to develop and explore their creativity, to encourage confidence and an ability express themselves in all areas of their lives.
