Wellbank Village Hall opened the doors on an innovative therapy art exhibition this week.

On Tuesday the artwork produced by the Dundee group of Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland was celebrated with a display in the village hall.

The artwork is the result of a creative engagement programme run by Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust’s ST/ART project for stroke and acquired brain injury participants and is supported by NHS Tayside.

Angus-based artist and educator Jude Gove has introduced the group to various printing techniques including quick and sketchy monoprints and bolder, textured and more complex linocut prints.

Each of the budding artists was tasked with working on a topic which interested them and as a result there is a fascinating range of subjects on offer, from birds to football and everything in between.

Jude said: “I have taken the group from simple traced monoprinting techniques, as an introduction to the concept of printing, to fairly complex multi-layered and coloured prints that are bold and exciting to see.

“Everyone really engaged with the processes and became more confident in their designs and creations.

“This approach was designed to let us move forward as a group and we did. It has been a great fun programme.”
