Drawing the Plants is an exhibition by artist Mary Lee Murphy, opening at University Hospital Galway on 4 February 2023 to coincide with World Cancer Day.

When Mary was faced with a serious health challenge she began to draw the plants in her garden. The exhibition comprises 23 of these drawings, brought together in a catalogue with an introduction by author Jo Nestor.

This exhibition is a tribute to people who are or have been affected by cancer in some way and also an appreciation of all the doctors, nurses and staff of University Hospital Galway. – Mary Lee Murphy

Drawing the Plants is presented by Saolta Arts, the dedicated arts service for Saolta University Health Care Group.

All proceeds from the catalogue will go towards arts programming for oncology patients in the Saolta University Health Care Group: saoltaarts.com/product/drawing-the-plants/
