An Exhibition of Patient & Professional Artwork at the RHN - Arts on the Hill 201222 November 2012
After the event
To conclude Arts on the Hill 2012 during four days in November, and throughout the charity’s spectacular listed Victorian building, a free art exhibition showed the work of local professional artists and RHN patients and, for a small fee, offered a unique ‘valuation station’ for anyone who wanted to bring items from their homes to see if they had a hidden gem.
Colour demonstrated the vital role Occupational Therapy Art plays at the Hospital, with the majority of artworks having been created during sessions in the Art Room. Visitors were invited to value the paintings they wished to buy, with a minimum price to cover framing costs. The exhibition also included ceramics, sculpture and work by professional local artists, including photography.
The theme of colour wasn't limited to the exhibition either, with lighting specialists White Light, kindly illuminating the exterior walls of the RHN’s spectacular listed Victorian building with different colours, which turned the front of the Hospital into a work of art in itself.
