An exhibition of creative work from an art group based at Paisley’s Disability Resource Centre has opened at the town’s Museum.


The Beyond Our Limits exhibition in the Sculpture Court will be the last showing in the space before Paisley Museum closes for a multi-million pound refurbishment.

The event is the result of a partnership between Renfrewshire Leisure, Renfrewshire Disability Arts Forum and the Disability Resource Centre.


Participants have been meeting once a week to create sculptures and artwork using both conventional and re-cycled materials under the guidance of local artist, Kevin Stewart Cantwell.
The Beyond Our Limits exhibition will run until September 8.

Joyce McKellar, chief executive of Renfrewshire Leisure said: “Each person taking part in the art group goes on a personal journey of creative discovery, and produces art far beyond what they thought was possible.

“This exhibition displays an amazing range of artwork, illustrating the development of each person’s creative process and increasing self-confidence.

“The exhibition is well worth going along to see.”
David Crichton, Renfrewshire Disability Arts Forum trustee, said “We are naturally proud of the work our artists produce – as rich in variety as in form.

“At the Forum, we are as keen as ever that participatory art should be for all, and we know it benefits health and wellbeing.

“Participation in group activity such as this delivers a boost to mental health, fights isolation and an exhibition such as this raises visibility of capability.

“At the launch event, the excitement of the artists was palpable, and they spoke about how much they enjoy working with local artist Kevin Cantwell.”
