An exhibition celebrating the life and work of Norman Telfer (1940 – 2017)
Norman Telfer started attending workshops at Project Ability in 2013 when he was a principal contributor to the social history project Lennox Castle Stories (www.lennoxcastlestories.co.uk).
Norman had spent many years in Lennox Castle Hospital and had an almost photographic recall of his time there. Taking part in the project had brought him back into contact with old friends from the “Castle” and after the project was completed Norman continued to attend workshops.
Norman stayed in Sanquhar, a fair bit out of Glasgow but he had a car and a driver and the weather had to be exceptionally bad to get him to turn back! Norman was an excellent draughtsman, had a light, sensitive touch to his drawing and had great powers of concentration often working on a drawing or painting over many sessions. On exhibition are just a few of the many wonderful artworks Norman created.
