Painting with Parkinson Art Exhibition

Mar 30, 2010

On Saturday 10th April, local organisation Painting with Parkinson will present its annual Art Exhibition, aptly titled, ‘More Expressions of Colour’.

Holt MP Anthony Byrne will be officially opening the exhibition and will receive a ‘golden paintbrush’ in reconition of becoming a Patron for the group.

“Painting with Parkinsons has been established to improve the living standard of people suffering Parkinson’s Disease, through the teaching of art,” said Anthony Byrne.

“I encourage all locals to turn out and support this worthy organisation,” said Anthony Byrne.

Anne Atkin, the group cordinator is a passionate ambassador for Parkinson’s Victoria and tirelessly volunteers her time promoting the organisation and its support services.

“PD is a hidden chronic illness and there are many totally incorrect beliefs about it in the community. This is one way to help
kill off a few of those myths,” said Mrs Atkin.

 “The exhibition is a chance for people who live with PD to show the community that they are still thinking, feeling human beings,” said Mrs Atkin.
