Artists from a Walton charity showcase their work for all to see at the Riverhouse Barn.

Wellness With A Goal (WWAG), which supports recovery and improves the quality of life for people with mental health issues, have encouraged their members to put pen to paper and pick up paintbrushes in recent months.

A range of paintings will be on display at the exhibition, with many depicting landscapes and the riverside scenes.

The charity’s art groups are beneficial to member’s wellbeing and can be a crucial part of their recovery, with the courses taught by artists June Turnham Corinne Manches.

All artwork on display is produced by people who suffer or have suffered with mental health issues and will be available for purchase, with proceeds going to WWAG.

Wellness With A Goal art exhibition; Riverhouse Barn, Manor Road, Walton; June 11 to June 15, 10am to 4pm Wednesday to Saturday, 2.30pm to 4.30pm Sunday; free entry; for more information, visit surreycommunity.info/wwag.
