Local Artist's Painting Donation Unveiled

A beautiful artwork by local artist, Lauren Woodcock, depicting the Clocktower building, which was donated to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust by the artist, was unveiled at Northern General Hospital on Friday 29 April, by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals' Chief Executive, Kirsten Major. The painting will be part of an exhibition showcasing other paintings and prints by the artist, at the Seven Hills Gallery, in the Huntsman building at the Northern General Hospital.

The artwork has been gifted to the Trust as a gesture of gratitude to the NHS, and was created by Lauren Woodcock, who uses the artist name MUT in her work. Living and working locally, Lauren painted prolifically during lockdown and produced many paintings of local landmarks and places loved by people in South Yorkshire.  

The unveiling was attended by Kirsten Major, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals' Chief Executive. Kirsten said, “I was delighted to officially open the exhibition and unveil the painting of the Clocktower artwork that Lauren Woodcock has donated to us. I would like to thank Lauren for her gesture of appreciation for the Trust and the wider NHS. The Clocktower is an iconic building and holds a special place in the history of the city of Sheffield. We hope to display it somewhere prominent on a permanent basis to allow as many people as possible to admire this fabulous gift once the exhibition at the gallery is complete."

The exhibition will be at the gallery between 29 April and 15 September 2022.

Framing and installation of this piece was coordinated by the Arts in Health Team, and kindly funded by supporters of Sheffield Hospitals Charity.
