The exhibition will be officially launched by John Behan RHA, Patron of Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust, on Friday December 19, at 1.30pm on the Arts Corridor, University Hospital, Galway.

Each year the Art@work exhibition aims to uncover more budding artists. This year it features fifty four artworks from twenty five staff working in Galway University Hospitals. Over sixty members of staff in the past twelve years have exhibited their work on the corridor every Christmas. The exhibition boasts a diverse range of media and techniques including; oils, watercolour, acrylic, photography, drawing. Some of the work will be for sale.

Margaret Flannery, Director of the GUH Arts Trust said, “Many of the artists participating have exhibited annually over the years. We also welcome new artists particularly those who are new to art making since participating in some of the arts programmes in GUH this past year and those who have begun making art since retirement.”

The exhibition is on view at the Arts Corridor of University Hospital Galway for colleagues, staff, patients and visitors to enjoy until 30 January.
