We have been successful in securing a site to show off the 13 pieces of art that is part of the AIM World Mental Health Day calendar. This is now on display at the Brasserie at John Lewis in Eldon Square, which is on the second floor. The staff at John Lewis are delighted with the high standard of art and were happy to keep them on show for quite a while. So get yourself along and see how fantastic it looks, as it has pride of place on the main wall as you walk into the Brasserie.

The art work has also been on display at the Hatton Gallery for a short period of time. We’ve also secured Wallsend Library to show off the art next year. Watch this space for dates.  

We are always looking for new venues to display the art work so please let get in touch of you know of any.
