Artists exhibit their talents after overcoming learning disabilities
ARTISTS with learning disabilities have put their work on show and met visitors to the exhibition.
"Exploration", on show at the Leatherhead Theatre, is the brainchild of artists Nickova Behling and Sue Sargeaunt, and was designed to give people usually excluded from visual art the chance to express themselves.
The exhibition opened on June 3 and ends on June 29, and a special reception was held on Saturday to allow visitors to meet the artists, who come from Colebrook Day Service in Redhill.
Care support worker Aimee Allen said: "I believe the service users really enjoyed the project. They were given the space with no restriction of expression."
