Following a successful run at local art gallery According to McGee, a selection of artwork by printmakers Olivia Streatfield-James and Rosemary Milner is now taking pride of place on the main corridor of York Hospital.
If you recently visited the New Visuality series at According to McGee, you may be familiar with the works of Olivia Streatfield-James and Rosemary Milner, who had their nature-inspired art displayed as part of an exhibition which ran between 14 July and 6 August at the gallery, located on Tower Street.
The work has now been transferred to the walls of York Hospital’s main corridor, where it makes up the new exhibition, ‘A Wild New Life’, which can be enjoyed by all hospital patients, staff, and visitors.
Perthshire born Streatfield-James draws upon local surroundings as her inspiration, most notably the natural landscape and the way it changes throughout the seasons, and as a result, wildlife has become a common theme in her art, with distinct pieces including highly skilled illustrations of hares, pheasants and red squirrels, amongst others.
With a similar passion for nature, Rosemary Milner is an English printed textile designer who has a notable consideration towards traditional methods of print and production. Her portfolio is somewhat an amalgamation of work in the form of hand-etchings, lino illustrations and screen prints.
This new exhibition is just one of several currently being showcased at the city’s hospital. Other exhibitions are scattered around the building both inside and out, ranging from sculptures to photographs, with several pieces on sale.
To help you know what to expect from the exhibition, you can find a gallery showcasing some of Streatfield-James’ and Milner’s pieces on the According to McGee webpage
The Wild New Life exhibition is open to all and willl be running from now until mid-November.
