Kesgrave Arts will be hosting an exhibition of 20 creative works from Headway Suffolk clients from Tuesday 24 – Saturday 28 October.
The studio, located at 83 Main Road in Kesgrave, is owned by South African-born artist Theronda Hoffman, who has been a keen supporter of Headway for a number of years.
Art is used as a method of expression and creativeness, and it helps to promote focus, concentration, imagination and individuality. The work on display will be available to purchase.
Prince Harry viewed and discussed art work by clients during his visit to Headway in Ipswich in July and autographed their work.
Headway supports users who have one-side neglect on their dominant side following a brain injury to learn to use and strengthen their other side. With this in mind, Theronda has had a device constructed, titled ‘Hoffman Art Grip’, to help users with their grip and control.
Theronda became a full-time artist in 1989 and has had exhibits throughout the world, including Canada, France, Italy, Chicago, Germany and London.
Headway Suffolk supports 250 adults a week who have an acquired brain injury or a neurological condition with rehabilitation and therapy at its hubs, in the community and at home.
The charity helps users to rebuild their lives, improve skills impaired as a result of their injury or condition, and live more independently.
