ART EXHIBITION & SALE

Lord Mayor Reception Room, Guildhall Road South, Swansea SA1 4PE

Gary featured on Swansea Bay TV to talk about his art and aim to support Veterans Club. 

Gary Crosby, a self-taught disabled watercolour artist has produced many paintings over the last two years and uses art as therapy to help cope with pain and his associated depression.

After being introduced to the Veterans Club, Gary began to learn about the support and benefit of their services to veterans and their families in communities.

Learning about PTSD and the difficulties many veterans face, together with the positive outcomes achieved to date, Gary has decided to donate his artwork to an exhibition and sale to raise funds to support Veterans Club and thank them for the service to their country.

Funds raised will go towards the purchase of a minibus for our disabled club members to attend the club meetings, veteran events and social days out.
