The Cardiff and Vale UHB Arts for Health and Wellbeing team are delighted to launch the Virtual Hearth Gallery.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hearth Gallery sadly had to close. However, now, as we look at beginning to safely open the physical space again we also must pay consideration to those who will not be able to visit it in person.
The Virtual Hearth Gallery is a new, online space for people to enjoy the fantastic pieces contributed by our network of artists from the safety and comfort of their own home.
The virtual space also works to make the gallery even more inclusive as it is accessible to hospital inpatients in sites other than University Hospital Llandough as well as those unable to leave their wards.
We are hosting the virtual gallery on an online platform which allows users to move around a 3-dimensional space with full control. Instructions on how to move around can be found each time you enter the virtual space.
Our first virtual exhibition is our 2020 Summer Exhibition, which features a range of pieces by twelve artists with a variety of paintings, drawings, photography and prints. Please click here to view the exhibition.
There is a full programme of exhibitions planned for the Virtual Hearth Gallery, all of which will be accessible via this page of our website.
