Creativity on show at Seniors’ Week art exhibition

Mayor of Randwick Councillor Lindsay Shurey with Montefiore President David Freeman AM

The foyer at Montefiore Randwick Residential Care was transformed into a pop-up gallery on Tuesday, April 10 for Seniors’ Week, showcasing the vibrant work of 18 resident artists aged into their late 90s. The exhibition was introduced by Randwick City Council Mayor, Councillor Lindsay Shurey, and by Joanna Capon OAM, who acts as honorary art consultant for the Montefiore Foundation. Sheila Corne spoke on behalf of her fellow residents – who ranged from established artists to complete novices before they came to live at the Randwick Campus – about the joy and meaning they all find in creativity, and the invaluable support offered by the dedicated Montefiore Art Therapy team.
