Whether you’re visiting the gym, the pool or making a special visit just to see the exhibition, a visit to Happy Pictures is sure to brighten up your day. CoActive artist Christopher has worked in collaboration with Sun Lane Leisure to bring you an exhibition of his happy pictures at one of his happy places – the swimming pool.

Christopher’s colourful pictures of people, flowers, patterns and responses to Sun Lane will be on display from 25th May to 23rd June, including the May Artwalk and Learning Disability week from June 17th.

Take a bit of happiness home with you – free pictures hand drawn for you by the artist are available to pick up on your visit!

This event is part of CoActive’s 20th anniversary year celebrations and is supported by a Culture Grant from Wakefield Council as part of Our Year – Wakefield District 2024. Thanks to Sun Lane staff for being so supportive of the collaboration and encouraging Christopher as a swimmer and an artist.
