Photo Gallery: Open Water, Andrea Hall, Stephen Joseph Theatre
It’s long been known that open-air swimming is good for your mental health. Outdoor exercise, especially near water, can improve your mood and self-esteem, and being close to nature has a calming, stress-reducing effect.
A new exhibition of paintings, Open Water, celebrating the joys of open water swimming will soon be displayed at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre. Each painting is created by open water swimmer, Andrea Hall, and features a tiny rubber duck. Tadcaster-based Hall is a professional artist and designer who was inspired to return to swimming by London 2012. She now combines her passion for painting with her love of open water.
