The Art Of Caring: Nursing And Drawing

Three postcards for the Art Of Caring exhibition

Three postcards for the Art Of Caring exhibition

I have three drawings in The Art Of Caring exhibition coming up in Surrey soon. I submitted three sketches that I’d done while visiting elder relatives in hospital and they’ve been reproduced as postcards for the show. All in all there are 251 artworks from 133 artists from all around the world on the theme of ‘Care and Caring’, celebrating International Nurse’s Day .

The Private View is next Tuesday 12th May from 4-6pm and the show runs daily, 10am to 6pm until May the 16th at the Rose Theatre, 24-26 High Street, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey KT1 1HL.

I have a relative who is a nurse. She works long hours in a frequently dangerous job in a service that is constantly being messed around with by idiot politicians. Sometimes things go wrong with the National Health Service and it’s right to highlight these situations and challenge bad practice, but on the whole, we have an excellent health service that many people around the world would love to have and we shouldn’t be complacent about it.
