She is also a member of the Altrincham Society of Artists (ASA) and Society of All Artists (SAA).

Trafford Libraries in Altrincham, new home for original Altrincham General Hospital painting by Daniel Adler

Local artist, Daniel Adler, handing over his wonderful painting of the original Altrincham General Hospital, now the new home of Altrincham Library, to Jill Robertson, one of the library managers today.

Daniel is resident artist with Art with a Heart and his passion for the arts stems back to his early childhood, where he developed his attention to fine detail. Daniel says his diagnosis of Aspergers, 'gives me the ability to produce the style of artwork like the Hospital painting. It is an asset and a gift and is the best thing that has ever happened to me'.

The painting will be hung in the library for everyone to enjoy.

Very proud of Resident Artist Daniel Adler. Painting looks great

Art with a Heart (AWAH) has been in Altrincham for 6 years opening with the CAFT charity art exhibition 'Around the World in 80 Artists', a successful using social media campaign to encourage artists from all 5 continents to donate artwork. This raised approx. £8,000 and started the journey of the first Arts Centre in Altrincham.

Over the years, we have grown from strength to strength expanding into the Arts and Heritage Centre we are today, encouraging between 5,000 to 15,000 visitors per annum. With the help of our volunteers working between 4,000 to 6,000 hours each year we have delivered regular free workshops, exhibitions and events, including the first Santa's Grotto, Trafford Schools Open and the Altrincham Open Art Exhibition. Our outreach activities have included the diversity and inclusion event in collaboration with AFC, working closely with the local schools and delivering the arts focus to Altrincham in Bloom contributing to the Gold awards.

In late 2017, the AWAH Trustees decided to embrace and develop the ‘Arts and Digital’ technology, while focussing on furthering our aims to ‘Educate, Develop and Support’ the local community. With this in mind we felt it was necessary to move to larger premises and therefore we will be moving to pastures new in the near future. During this period of transition we will continue to deliver our various projects as well as working with the students on their Duke of Edinburgh Awards and others on their work experience activities.

Thank you to all our supporters in Altrincham, and we look forward to welcoming you to our new location.
