Time to be positive


POSITIVE posters will be displayed in a village as part of an outdoor art exhibition aiming to bring smiles to people’s faces.

The Hope Shines exhibition will display work by ArtWorks artists, a small organisation that specialises in supporting artists with learning disabilities and autism.

Uplifting messages of support and hope reflecting over the last 12 months will be displayed in the belief it will add “a smile to the day of the people passing by”.

Emma Harnett, from ArtWorks, said: “Because many galleries have been closed due to restrictions, we decided that an outdoor exhibition within our local community would be the perfect opportunity to begin showing our artwork to the world again.”

The posters will be displayed on the fence outside the ArtWorks Thorpe Hesley Community Centre at the top of Brook Hill in Thorpe Hesley until September 26.

“We hope our posters inspire the village to make their own positive posters in response to ours,” Emma said.

“Whether it’s working out how to use Zoom, your dog loving you being at home or the work our amazing key workers have been doing — there is always something to be grateful and hopeful for.”
