Westgate Medical Practice is once again giving local artists an opportunity to display their work in the practice’s waiting areas and corridors.
This is the sixth ‘gallery‘ the practice has housed. The annual sale exhibition is part of Westgate’s ongoing support to its ‘twin’ health clinic in Malawi.
The idea which has proved popular with patients and staff was originally suggested by Mrs Jacqueline Wilson, a member of the Patient Advisory Group. About 20 local artists are participating in this year’s exhibition which once again has been organised by local artist, Mr Joe McIntyre.
As previously Westgate Medical Practice’s Malawian twinning charity will receive 25% of any sale made.
Mr Sam Riddell, Practice Director at Westgate Practice said, “The team at Westgate is delighted to provide another opportunity for showcasing local artistic talent, with the added benefit of supporting the work we are doing with our ‘twin’ health clinic in Zomba, Malawi.”
So far a total of 103 paintings have been sold, and £2000 has been donated to the clinic in Malawi.
