Closed for the summer holidays…

Dear All

Thanks to all of you for your continuing involvement in the Onward Arts staff art programme. I have really enjoyed seeing all your submissions since the blog started. We are now taking a summer break and applying for new funds in order to continue the work from September. In the meantime we are no longer taking submissions. I will update the blog again in September when we know more about the programme for 2018. Happy holidays. Liz, Mary and Anna.

New staff art exhibition

Last week myself and Mary Hooper installed the new staff art exhibition in the link corridor on the first floor of the Barry Building. We had submissions from fourteen different members of staff across different departments in the hospital. The work includes photography, drawing, painting, computer art and textiles. As we were installing the work, we received numerous positive comments from passing patients, carers and staff about the quality of the work, and its contribution to the hospital environment.
