The WellArt Gallery opened for five days in an empty Kendal shop thanks to the Elephant Yard Shopping Centre and it’s management who have the vision to see that such events benefit all involved. Work came from a range of sources with all participants having some link to the WellArt Group and the Mental Health charity Workbase based in Kendal.
WellArt is a group that meets weekly and tries its hand at any creative activity ranging from oil painting to recycled plastic sculpture. It is not always about the quality of art but the creative, social and positive interaction of the group which helps people feeling low for whatever reason to have a respite from their problems.
