More than 70 talented artists will have their colourful creations hosted by Kent County Council next week.


The exhibition, entitled Art Ability, will see residents supported by the council’s learning disability services invited to County Hall in Maidstone to display and sell their unique artwork.


Animal heads

Paintings, sculpture and photography will be among items included, as well as a number of animal heads made from recycled materials contributed by the community centre in Swalecliffe and a colourful collage of a tree created by the Thanet Community Day Service.

Damien Ellis, Head of Service Provision for Learning Disabilities said: “This exhibition will be an excellent showcase of the artistic talent we have across Kent, from the people who access services.

“I know that everyone has been working very hard to prepare for this event, and I hope the local community will come out and support them all by visiting Maidstone and seeing the exhibition.”

The exhibition will be open to the public in Stone Hall at County Hall, County Road Maidstone, from 9am to 5pm from July 9 through to July 20.

Craft Fair


On the final day there will be a craft fair where people can meet the artists and buy crafts and paintings. This will be open from 11-2 pm.

It is hoped the show could become a regular event.
