“Fantastic art with a strong pertinent message. A beautiful initiative, raising awareness for what is still sadly seen as a taboo subject in our society” – Exhibition viewer, 2016
The exhibition includes ‘A Celebration of Gillian’s Artwork’
“Gillian Watts struggled with mental health problems in her 20s, but managed to obtain an HND in Art. She loved and lived for art. Gillian was a very special person, she was full of compassion, always helping others, very generous and loving. She had a zest for life, was witty and liked making you laugh. Gillian died aged 38 on 16th June, 2012. We hope you enjoy her art work” – Gillian’s family.
