‘Colours Of Hope’ Exhibition To Help Improve Facilities At UHK

Posted by


The ‘Colours Of Hope’ Exhibition is running at University Hospital Kerry.

TO help raise the spirits of patients and staff, Tralee Art Group and University Hospital  Kerry have recently collaborated to bring about  an uplifting initiative to adorn the walls of UHK with bright, beautiful, colourfulart creations known as the ‘Colours of Hope Exhibition’.

Tralee Art Group members and some friends of Tralee Art Group, have produced seventy  works which are presently on exhibit  for staff / patients at University  Hospital Kerry for approximately six weeks.

Members of the public can also view a selection of this artwork through a slideshow of the works available on the social media platforms of both Tralee Art Group and University Hospital Kerry.

All works will be for raffled to raise funds to improve facilities for an ‘age-friendly’ hospital environment.

The exhibition was launched on 10th August and raffle tickets have sold very swiftly on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Each art piece is presented in a frame, providing great value to those lucky enough to have acquired a raffle ticket.

The number of tickets is limited to the number of pieces on exhibition, ensuring that anyone buying a ticket is guaranteed an original artwork by local artists.  The raffle for art pieces will take place at the end of the six week exhibition (week commencing 21st September 2020).

University Hospital Kerry particularly wishes to extend their sincere appreciation and thanks to all those members of Tralee Art Group and friends of Tralee Art Group, who have generously given of their time, to this wonderful initiative.

A special word of thanks was also extended to Amanda Brolly Advanced Nurse Practitioner UHK in liaising with the Tralee Art Group  to bring this exhibition to fruition. For more, see the University Hospital Kerry facebook page.
