New Galleries at Two SA Hospitals

SpARC Gallery

The Centre for Creative Health (CCH) is pleased to launch new gallery spaces at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) and Modbury Hospital.

The new sites join our existing galleries at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Lyell McEwin Hospital.

Modbury Hospital’s gallery is within the Specialist Ambulatory Rehabilitation Centre’s (SpARC, pictured above) main waiting area and the gallery at TQEH is inside the main entrance to the hospital.

CCH Senior Curator Fiona Borthwick said she is thrilled to be expanding the Exhibition Program to continue creating a healing environment and improve the experience of healthcare for patients, staff, visitors and volunteers.

“These galleries bring life to the hospital walls which creates an escape for patients, staff, visitors and volunteers at a time where they need it most,” Fiona said.

“Our existing gallery spaces have become very popular as not only do they provide diverse artistic experiences, but also respite from the anxiety, stress and the monotony often experienced by hospital patients and their loved ones.”

CCH invites artists to submit exhibition proposals during our annual call out in August and September each year.

Information on how to apply will be available during the application period. For the latest information on exhibition opportunities, please follow our social media pages, including Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Support CCH Through Artwork Sales

When you purchase an artwork from one of our galleries, 25 per cent of the sale comes back to CCH, which helps us continue creating a healing environment for patients in hospital.

The ever-changing exhibitions are across the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Lyell McEwin Hospital, Modbury Hospital and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
