A DRUMCHAPEL day centre is set to host an art exhibition as part of an open day.

Antonine Court aims to provide the highest level of care and support to educate and enable adults with varying abilities and their families to reach their full potential within their own goals and aspirations.

The event takes place on Saturday, July 20 and will run from 11am until 1pm at the organisation's premises on Dunkenny Road.

Anne McKenna, assistant manager at the centre, explained the importance of open days like these in raising awareness of the services that are available for those with additional support needs.

"We want to connect the community," she said. "We will have the venue open to showcase the service users’ work.

"They have been taking part in a jewellery project and will be promoting that with stalls.

"We are also keen to highlight Antonine All Stars which is our new children’s group."

Local artist Ian McKay, who has spent the last three decades capturing the history of Drumchapel on canvas, will also be exhibiting his work at the open day.

And Anne was keen to highlight how vital it is for the centre to build bridges with the community.

"We used to do these events years ago but then we stopped for some reason so this will be us getting back into the swing of doing them again," she continued.

"All the service users who are taking part seem really excited about it.

"They have a sense of achievement which is really important.

"The feedback from the families of service users has also been really positive.

"We love putting on these events as it is really great to showcase the things service users have been working on and it is also important to open ourselves up to the community."
