An exhibition of art created by people with mental health needs will open in Weston-super-Mare next month.

The museum in Burlington Street will host the event from June 9-16.

The exhibition, called The Apple Of My Eye, will feature pieces made by 18 people who have taken part in Art for Wellbeing workshops run by mental health charity 1in4 People.

Curator and group teacher Georgia Shearman said: “It has been an honour to support these students to create these wonderful artworks and I have been struck by the beauty and honesty of their work.

“It has been amazing to watch people shift their focus to creating art, offering relief from anxiety and a chance to build trust and share experiences with their fellow students.

“The resulting exhibition is sure to make an impact on all who see it.”

The exhibition will also be on show in Bristol later in the year.
