An exhibition of paintings of older Indian men and women has gone on show at a London gallery to promote public knowledge of Help the Aged. The 17 paintings, by Asian artist Baljit Balrow, were created to mark the work the charity does to improve the lives of older Asians in this country and on the Indian sub-continent. "The subject of the paintings is serious but the images are light-hearted and have positive tones to portray the generous warmth older people radiate," said Balrow. "While the work is nostalgic it is also forward-thinking. It reflects the Help the Aged vision of a future of older people having lives that are richer." The exhibition is on show at the Bhavan Centre in Kensington, West London until 8 July. (See Case Study, p13).
