The Process of Display
The next stage prepares the art for installation. On the table, there is a selection of designs from Printmaking, Painting, and One-to-one classes which are created by seniors from the Residential, Nursing and Dementia Units. The Arts Practitioner creates a curation plan for display and works together with the residential homes interior.
Contemporary Art Gallery Wall
Before the gallery transformation, the wall displayed large scale black & white photography in the Dementia Unit’s dining room. How does the setting change once the senior's artworks replace the previous photographic images? Through observation in Coffee & Cake mornings with the public, it’s a significant mood booster. The various scenes, colours, and designs become a point of conversation with the carers, family, and staff. The seniors reminisce about past memories and they feel proud to have their art displayed on the walls.
