You may remember a recent call to provide the Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital with artwork for their new Orthopaedic Wing. Thank you to everyone who submitted amazing work which was hung this week. This forms part of our Community Artwork venture, so that these pieces are offered for sale, and at intervals will be circulated between the hospital, around local medical surgeries, and council offices in Oakmount Road.
New picture rails have been installed in the new wing at the hospital, and more picture rails will be installed in phases when funding allows. It was not an easy job selecting pieces of the right size, colours and subject. The new Orthopaedic Ward and Consulting Rooms look very much better with the addition of the artwork! They have been tastefully decorated in a grey emulsion and wallpaper, and really needed the splashes of colour our group has provided.
Artworks will be rotated from time to time, and new pieces will replace those sold.
Thank you to everyone who got involved with this project, and especially to Barbara Wigelsworth, our Community Artwork organiser.
