“The SPAC Hospital Art Exhibition is dedicated to the premise that arts & culture can do for the healing spirit what treatment & technology can do for the ailing body. SPAC strives to present an exhibit that encourages thoughtful contemplation, offering patients, staff & visitors a chance to experience the healing soothing & inspiring powers of creative expression. It is the hope of SPAC to encourage both the participation & the interest in art and culture.”
The next art changeover will be May 5, 2020 at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital (SPH) from 11 am to 1 pm.
SPAC members can submit two oil or acrylic or three under-glass pieces of art. The total number that can be submitted is three. Photography is welcome.
All works must meet SPAC hanging standards: all artwork must be original, current (within the last two years), and have appropriate content for the hospital (nature, animals, etc.). Artwork must be ready to hang, with wire ends taped, frames, glass and mats neat and clean. The artist’s name, phone number and the title must be on the back.
Artwork must be accompanied by a completed Hospital Art Registration Form which can be downloaded for printing below.
Please pick up any work currently in the hospital exhibit and/or drop off any new works between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. Meet us in the hall across from the cafeteria. (The extended care unit doors are closest, but you can come in by either entrance.)
Note that while all possible measures are taken to safeguard exhibited artworks, neither SPAC nor the SPH are liable for lost, stolen or damaged artwork.
