Open Exhibition

Level 3 & 4 main corridors, Medical Surgical Outpatients corridor, Salisbury District Hospital

Contemplation by Joanne Tudor - mixed media painting of a barn owl

Laura describes her students' work, "This year there has been a great deal of enthusiasm for the painting of birds. A difficult subject with technical challenges in drawing, textures and colouring, but the results speak for themselves - on a small or a large scale there are some lovely examples. This was followed with some tricky design problems presented by the new subject, fish. Pattern and abstract design were chosen by some.We started the year working on the theme, white on white, which has resulted in some subtle tonal studies of windows and still life. We then moved to studying Cezanne’s portraits to coincide with the National Portrait Gallery show of his work. A small group of painters have ended the painting year with a trip to Cornwall, so a few examples from the Helford River can be enjoyed."

Echo

Pembroke/ Elderly Care courtyard, Level 2, Phase II building

Echo by Charlotte Moreton

Echo has been loaned to ArtCare by the artist Charlotte Moreton for display at Salisbury District Hospital. Charlotte Moreton trained at the Frink School of Figurative Sculpture (1999-2001) and combines sculpture and teaching with nature conservation work. Her sculpture is greatly influenced by trees and nature and "her immense sensitivity to people and the environment has given her a flying start in her career as a sculptor" (Rosemary Barnett, Director of the Frink School).
