Kate Downie print still available

We had a great fundraising exhibition Bridges to Wonder at the beginning of June, in which we exhibited art by several of the artists who feature in our collection, raising over £7,000 for Art in Healthcare. Thank you to BTO Solicitors for their sponsorship!

South Tower Yellow Crane by Kate Downie

BTO also sponsored us to commission a new limited edition print by Kate Downie, South Tower Yellow Crane, depicting the construction of the new Queensferry Crossing bridge, which is due to be opened this summer. Kate created only 35 of these prints and several have already sold, but we still have some available, so if you would like to order one, please contact us at The prints cost £420 unframed and £530 framed. The full value of sales will go to supporting Art in Healthcare's work to bring art to patients, staff and vistors in healthcare settings.
