AN art exhibition is being held to show the effects of a neurological disease.

Artist Juliet Chenery-Robson will be showcasing her work during an event at the Gemini Building, in Whitehouse Way, Peterlee.

The exhibition, which will take place between 6pm and 8.30pm tomorrow, is being held as part of ME Awareness Week.

The 70 powerful images have been entitled ME An Invisible Illness.

ME North East trustee Juliet, whose daughter has lived with ME for more than six years, said: “My work investigates the scepticism surrounding ME.”

The show is being held in conjunction with Life with Art, a new charity that has been established to help young and disabled people throughout the UK.

It is one of 16 rolling exhibitions and art workshops being held across the country in the next 12 months.

ME affects more than 12,000 in the region, 1,250 of which are children.

There is no known cause or cure.
