Beacon Arts Centre, GALLERY | 20 -27 November
Inverclyde is firmly in the frame for an exhibition of paintings from world-renowned Scottish artist Gerard M Burns and in a unique link-up, the centrepiece of the exhibition will shine the spotlight on the inspiring work of an Inverclyde charity.
One of the paintings being exhibited at the Beacon from 20-27 November has been created to showcase the work of “Inverclyde Faith in Throughcare” – based in Greenock. This charity provides support and guidance for people returning to society from prison and a link for people involved in the criminal justice system and is known as I FiT for short. Gerard has called both the painting and the exhibition “I Am Here” referring to the fact that people who have been in prison are often ‘invisible’ in society.
The exhibition has also been timed to coincide with Prisoners’ Week Scotland which runs from November 21 to 27.
The extensive exhibition which will also feature a wide range of Gerard’s remarkable creative talent.
