Art collection on display at Sheffield care home

Posted on 10 May 2011

An extensive art collection in Sheffield is currently on display at a care home, with those choosing a care home no doubt taking note.

The relatively unknown collection of Master Cutler Neil Turner has been put on display at Broomgrove Nursing Home, reports the Sheffield Star.

Master Turner, who was a chairman at the charitable-status care home, had been collecting the artwork for 30 years at the time of his death.

Almost 100 paintings feature in the collection, by local artists including Wendy Reeves, Alan Ingham and David Morgan.

Care home manager Jill Wall told the newspaper: "Staff and residents have always loved the stunning art that adorns the walls here."

"We're hoping to carry on Neil's tradition and keep a rolling programme of art on our walls as it's so popular with both staff and residents."

Meanwhile, an arts project in Keighley is to help people with dementia paying for care, reports the Keighley News.

Bradford District Care Trust and Opera North are collaborating on the project which will involve a series of workshops featuring live musicians and singers.
