An exhibition of artwork which tries to offer a greater understanding of mental health will open in Bexley on November 25.

The charity Centrepieces, founded by a group of local artists who have experienced mental health problems, is behind the exhibition at the Stables Gallery at Hall Place.

Since 1999 the charity has offered art activities to people in Bexley and surrounding areas with mental health problems along with the opportunity to display and sell their work.

Geoff Norris, co-ordinator of Centrepieces, said: “I thoroughly enjoy the experience of being involved in the passion and creativity of Centrepieces artists - and witnessing how people change in a very positive way over time.”

The exhibition will be opened by Councillor Eileen Pallen and there will be an opportunity to meet some of the artists whose work will be on display.

Centrepieces: Open Exhibition 2017 runs from November 25 - December 21 at the Stables Gallery, Bexley. Admission is free.
