Helping Neighbours

Helping Neighbours

Artists: Garth Prothero & Fairy Lagrada
Title: Helping Neighbours
Materials: Acrylic on Canvas
Artist Statement: For Garth, community is about helping neighbours. He does this every week day through the Neighbours Helping Neighbours program where he and his team reach out to seniors and help them mow their lawns, rake leaves in the fall and shovel snow in winter time. This is what makes him feel being a part of the community. Wondering about the white truck? This is the vehicle his day program uses to get to the places where their help is needed.
For Fairy, community is an acceptance & respect of everyone’s gifts and disabilities. In her presence is the absence of the colour purple.
