Phill Watmough (Dementia Artist) is a valued member of the Tibbs Dementia community. We have the exciting opportunity to support him to exhibit his work in the beautiful surroundings of St Paul’s Church in Bedford from 15th – 24th July. Phill’s abstract work is vibrant, colourful and full of energy and optimism and we hope that this will shine through as he exhibits over 100 of his favourite pieces. We’ll also be displaying work from other members of the Tibbs community and work created at our art and craft group.
For many people a diagnosis of dementia will be perceived as a series of losses and perhaps a retreat into the self. At Tibbs Dementia Foundation we have experienced that through the creative arts many can find a new means of expression, an opportunity to learn and enjoy new skills and talents and to have opportunities to remain engaged and active citizens with a great deal to offer and contribute. We hope that this exhibition will reflect this as we celebrate the contributions and creativity of our dementia community.
The free exhibition entitled ‘Dementia Hidden Art’ will be open daily from 11am- 3pm from Friday 15th- 24th July at St Paul’s Church, St Paul’s Square, Bedford MK40 1SQ
The exhibition opens with a special concert on Friday 15th from 2pm- 4pm featuring Tibbs Dementia Foundation’s Music 4 Memory, when we will join together connecting through music, song and dance before informally viewing the exhibition. Please join us to help celebrate and enjoy the unique and creative contributions from across the Tibbs community, to meet Phill and others who have contributed and to experience the vibrancy, joy and energy that we experience as a creative community.
