Fri 8 April – Thu 30 Jun
Birmingham Institute of Art and Design
Walsall Manor Hospital, Family Health and Diagnostics Levels 1 and 2
The spring and summer exhibition season shows a diverse collection of photographic art work exploring the theme of Light. Students from the BA (Hons) Visual Communication course at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design have developed their work specifically for exhibition at Walsall Manor Hospital.
All the artists featured in the exhibitions, situated in the corridors on Levels 1 and 2 of the hospital’s new Family Health and Diagnostics centre, have taken inspiration from a personal exploration of light. With studies ranging from natural objects, illumination, observation, portraiture and perception.
Light kicks off a series of quarterly exhibitions planned for Walsall Manor Hospital. The gallery spaces aim to provide artists with temporary exhibition opportunities whilst at the same time working to enhance the environment for staff, patients and visitors. Artists will be offering the opportunity to purchase the work on display with 20% of sales being donated to the hospital’s charitable trust.
Light will be on display at the Manor Hospital from the Friday 8 April to Thursday 30 June 2011. For further information please contact Kerry Hodgkiss on 01922 721172 (x6344).
