New art exhibition unveiled at Hexham General Hospital

A new art exhibition featuring the work of artist Linda Marriott has been unveiled at Hexham hospital. 

The paintings depict the North East coastline and can be seen outside the HVS shop and café.

Linda, who lives in Tynemouth, said: “I’m delighted to have my paintings on display at the hospital and hope they bring pleasure to patients, staff and those visiting the hospital. 

“I am lucky to live by the beautiful coast where I often walk marvelling at the ever changing skies and sea. I take inspiration from this for my paintings using oils to achieve rich colours and texture. I will always have a love of our stunning coastline as I have of painting it.”

Our warmest thanks go to Linda for this exhibition.

It is part of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust’s long standing healing arts programme which uses art as a therapeutic medium to improve the hospital environment for patients, visitors and staff.
