Art at the Heart Exhibition RUH
The Art at the Heart Exhibition at the Royal United Hospital in Bath (RUH) in is currently hosting an art exhibition until October 2017. The exhibition is displayed in the central corridors of the RUH and is bigger and better than previous years.
The RUH has one of Bath’s most accessible exhibition spaces, open 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. The hospital provides space for both amateur and professional artists, and arts organisations, to exhibit their work in a different environment and contribute to improving the lives of up to 200,000 people every year.
In addition to the public areas, they sell and arrange commission of artwork for display in wards and departments. Their aim is to ensure that the quality of artwork and framing throughout the Trust is of a consistent high quality.
This temporary exhibition serves an important purpose in helping raise funds through the artist donations they make on sales.
They rarely buy artwork for public spaces, saving money for the Trust whilst keeping the displays fresh and dynamic. At any one time the total value of artwork on display in public areas is around £200,000, providing a substantial asset for the hospital and all who enjoy the pieces.
Artists from all 4 Widcombe Art Trails with Bath Open Studios have been invited to contribute. I am pleased to have sold 2 of my photo artworks so far!
