This summer, Paintings in Hospitals celebrates some of the most bold, colourful and contemporary works in its collection and the launch of its bright new logo with a two-floor exhibition at the Menier Gallery.
Founded in 1959, Paintings in Hospitals (PiH) is the oldest national organisation working within the field of arts in health. Via its unique picture loan service, the charity provides high-quality artwork to a diverse range of healthcare sites, including hospitals, GP surgeries, hospices and mental health facilities, in return for an affordable annual fee.
The works in this exhibition are all from the London branch of the collection, which includes some of the most notable artists of the last 50 years. This show will feature large canvases by well-known artists such as Ian Davenport and Simon Callery, new acquisitions by emerging artists Daniel Preece and Chiara Williams, as well as prints by Victor Pasmore, Anthony Frost and Anni and Joseph Albers.
The exhibition will be opened by Val Huet, Chief Executive Officer of the British Association of Art Therapists, who will be speaking about the importance of displaying gallery-standard art in the clinical environment.
