AN EXHIBITION celebrating children’s television programmes will be coming to Evergreen Art Cafe later in the month.

Entitled Art You Grew Up With, there will be several pieces based around shows including Bagpuss, Mr Men and Mr Benn.

Artist Paul Oz, pictured above, will be visiting the gallery on the same day as the exhibition where he will be painting a piece live and also be on hand to answer questions people have about the piece.

The cafe’s owner Simon Williams said: “There is a huge market for this type of art, it is very collectable for some people.

“As far as we are concerned, it is a perfect introduction to art because it has all of those things that people will remember from their childhood.

“We want to make art accessible to as wider audience as possible and this exhibition is a great way to do this.”

Art You Grew Up With will be coming to the cafe on Saturday, May 12. Paul will be visiting between 10.30am and 4pm. Entrance is free.
