Artwork by Nepalese children exhibited at city jewellers

Jewellery was swapped for vividly coloured canvases in Winchester as Jeremy France Jewellers’ Wedding Lounge was transformed into an art gallery for the three-day event in April.


The exhibition, opened by the Mayor of Winchester, was organised by non-profit charity Kalaa Jyoti, meaning ‘Art Enlightenment’ in Nepalese, and showcased artwork painted by orphaned or disadvantaged children in Nepal.


Chairman, Gerald Davies explained “Kalaa Jyoti charity was established in 2010 to enhance the lives of orphans and poor children, improve their career prospects, broaden their horizons and provide a means of self- expression which otherwise will be denied to them through lack of opportunity and funding”
