Up-and-coming Exhibitions

CENTRAL GALLERY 21st July – 12th October 2017


Bath Open Studios at the RUH

A selection of pieces will be on show in the corridors of the Royal United Hospital this summer showcasing some of the eclectic range of art and craft that is made across the city.

Brought together by Bath Open Studios (BOS) in collaboration with the Art at the Heart Team at the RUH, around 100 works will be on display including paintings, prints, mosaics and photography as well as ceramics, glass work and felt.  As well as works from the 4 art groups that have had annual trails in May for some years now, this show includes works from Combe Down who are opening their studio doors for the first time this year over the weekend of 9th and 10th of September.

BOS is proud to represent and promote all art and craft makers residing in the city. It is committed to supporting their practice and to raising the profile of art trails as a recognised outlet for the presentation of art and craft. BOS fosters a greater awareness of the individual artist while allowing for each of the 4 trails to retain its particular style. Showing this selection in the hospital corridors is an exciting taste of the works which (as well as Combe Down this Autumn) will be available in homes and studios during may next year when there will be a warm welcome to all.


CENTRAL GALLERY 20th October 2017 –  18th January 2018


RUH Staff & Volunteer Exhibition 2017 

Art at the Heart is the on-going arts programme for RUH Bath NHS Trust. Since 2001, the Art at the Heart programme has been working to improve patient well-being and the working lives of staff at the hospital by enhancing patient environments, boosting staff morale and providing opportunities for positive involvement.

With over 4,800 staff and volunteers at the RUH there is sure to be a great pool of artistic talent waiting to be revealed. Art at the Heart would like to support these abilities by encouraging staff and volunteers to share their work with other staff and members of the public in our Staff and Volunteer art exhibition 2017.

The exhibition will be held in the Central Gallery and will be open from 20th October 2017 – 18th January 2018 and will be seen by many of the thousands of patients, visitors and staff who pass through the RUH every day.

If you are an RUH Staff Member or Volunteer and would like to submit work for exhibition, please visit our Contact Us page for the Entry Guidelines and Submission Form.
