MORAY SCHOOL OF ART students will be presenting their Art in Healthcare Exhibition at Moray College UHI this week.

Friday will see the work of Moray students Muriel Hughes, Kim Welch and Sadie Stoddart, who were chosen to take part in an internship with Grampian Hospital Arts Trust (GHAT) on the ‘Resonate Disseminate’ project with the aim to enhance healthcare spaces with artwork.

Under the direction of lead artist Mike Inglis, practicing artist and part time lecturer at Edinburgh College of Art, the project is spread across two sites including Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin and Inverurie Hospital.

Throughout the project the Moray College UHI Fine Art Degree students shadowed the artists from GHAT, helped out with events and documented their experiences in photographs and sketchbooks.

Muriel Hughes, who is a third year fine art student, said: “We have organised this event as part of our internship to exhibit the unique mixture of documentation and collaboration.”

The exhibition will showcase the artwork of the students, the artists and the community as well as offering potential outcomes for ‘Resonate Disseminate’ project as it becomes embedded across the Grampian region.

The opening event at Moray School of Art Gallery at the Moray College UHI campus on Friday, February 16 at 2pm will celebrate the project featuring the artists and a performance by art poet Jo Hastie.

The exhibition will continue to run for one week from February 19 to February 23 between 9am-4pm at the college.
