The exhibition was introduced by Randwick Mayor, Councillor Lindsay Shurey, and by Joanna Capon, 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.
