Patient artwork goes on show at city gallery

Pop along to Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum to see an exhibition of artwork created by patients attending Day Services at St Richard’s Hospice.

Patients attending the hospice’s Living Well Exploring Painting Techniques group on Friday mornings created most of the work on show, inspired by the hospice’s emblem – the snowdrop.


The exhibition runs until Saturday, 9th June at the gallery in Foregate Street, Worcester.

The group has been developing skills with watercolours, oil and chalk pastels – and it is a fantastic opportunity for them to showcase their new found abilities in this space.

Mary Jenkins, Creative Therapist at St Richard’s, said: “This exhibition is a great opportunity for the group to show their new found skills. To be part of an exhibition is great for self-esteem and also to support publicity for the hospice.

“It is a fantastic opportunity and great for the group involved who are learning new skills. Framing a piece of work immediately lifts the piece and to see it in an organised exhibition space lifts the spirits.”

Patients attending Day Hospice have also helped create some of these pieces. Also on display is lovely needle-felted work by a member of the hospice’s Saturday Social group.

The snowdrop features in the logo of St Richard’s Hospice and acts as a symbol of hope.
