Art Wall Exhibition in Aid of Andy's Man Club

June 21, 2023

Leigh-on-sea Community Centre is pleased to welcome a new exhibition on our community Art Wall from 25th June called ‘Heavy Soul’. ‘Heavy Soul’ is an exhibition of paintings and digital art by a group of artists hoping to raise awareness for men’s mental health support, specifically Andy’s Man Club Southend. 

The Club tragically lost their founder Darren Smith in late May this year and the exhibition is now dedicated to his tireless work helping men in Essex.

All artists are donating a percentage of any sales to Andy’s Man Club (AMC) and in some cases 100%.

There will also be a large interactive piece called “Larger Than Life” dedicated to Darren Smith, where people (be they friends, family or AMC attendees) are invited to leave a message actually on the artwork.

The exhibition is on display on the Art Wall until 4th  August and can be viewed at any time the Centre is open. For more information about Andy’s Man Club or to purchase any of the artwork on display please contact;
