AN art exhibition raising cash for veterans is set to shine a light on a Renfrewshire charity’s 100-year history.

Art for Erskine, staged at The Lighthouse, in Glasgow, until Sunday, will include footage and artefacts charting the history of Erskine Hospital.

Visitors will be able to feel the weight of a replica artificial limb and learn about the workshops which have supported the rehabilitation of patients since 1917.

People will also be able to see veterans’ drawings, poetry and notes, including the Erskine Bugle newsletter written by patients at the hospital.

The exhibition includes a selection of contemporary artwork which will be sold to support the care of veterans in Erskine’s care homes in Bishopton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Erskine.

Sara Bannerman, Erskine’s head of external relations, told The Gazette: “It attracts a wide range of people with varied interests and is always a busy event.

“We are extremely grateful to The Studio: Fine Art Company and The Lighthouse for their support.”

Artists featured include Gerard Burns, Joe Hardan, Peter Howson, Frank McFadden and Ian Rawnsley.

The free exhibition is open from 10.30am to 5pm today, tomorrow, Friday and Saturday and from noon to 5pm on Sunday.
