Friends of Cerebral Palsy Midlands, it is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of a very special person to us, Jeff Young. Jeff had been a citizen and member of our services for around twenty four years and has made many friends here.  
 
Jeff was a known most for his work in the art room and his paintings. It is thought he had between 500 and 700 paintings and was always thinking of his next creative piece. Painting inspired him and got him out into the local community. Every piece of work was a snapshot he had from a memory, a community, fields, country parks, pubs, Birmingham Canals, Stables, Tin Mines and more. 
 
Currently three framed paintings are being exhibited in 'Silver and Love' on Harborne High Street ahead of an up and coming annual community event, 'Harborne Artsmile', taking place on Saturday 21st September 2019. The jewellers were keen to exhibit work from local artists and it seemed like the right time to showcase Jeff's paintings in his memory. 
 
He was a lovely man and CPM became his second family. His love of arts also made him an enthusiastic member of 'The Being Heard Music Group' family. 
 
Jeff Young's funeral will take place on Friday 13th September 2019 at 12.15pm at Lodge Hill Cemetery and Crematorium, Weoley Park Road, Birmingham, B29 5AA.

Jeff Young left a legacy of artwork and memories with his friends here at CPM, he will be greatly missed.

Mary Hill sells her transcript painting 'Picasso's Harlequins'. 
Harborne charity Cerebral Palsy Midlands were delighted to present one of their greatest 'VeraNic' artists Mary Hill with £149, which was the money sold for one of her paintings that was exhibited in local BooBoo cafe. 
 
The art that sold was Mary's transcript paintings of 'Picasso's Harlequins', she put in many hours and time into creating her own masterpiece and was so proud to have the recognition and the painting sold. It really was a big deal for Mary and this has definately inspired her to continue creating more fantastic artwork.  
 
The exhibit was put up in BooBoo Cafe in October last year as part of Harborne Artsmile and has been able to stay up since. 

Mary Hill is overjoyed to have sold her painting at BooBoo Cafe in Harborne.

Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) are really pleased to have our artwork exhibited in the local Harborne community at Booboo Café. 
 
The work was exhibited as part of this year’s Harborne Artsmile that took place Saturday 30th September. There were all sorts of interactive art activities across the Harborne High Street from Harborne Swimming Baths to Computeraccount at the other end of the High Street. 
 
Booboo Cafe have enjoyed having a collection of our artwork up on their walls and have continued to keep the exhibit a little longer. This helps us raise awareness for our charity and showcase the talent we have here at our centre. 
Every Thursday our VeraNic artists get arty and inspired. We thought we would share their developments with you.
