The Art Gallery at St Patrick’s University Hospital was opened in February 2011. It had been developed over the previous two years by the members of the Art Committee at SPUH. The purpose in developing the gallery was to facilitate the appreciation of visual art by the SPUH community, its staff, service users and visitors. Many great Irish artists have suffered from mental health aJohn Bellany,Avail, 1997, Oil on canvas, 173 x 152 cm, Collection Irish Museum of Modern Art, Purchase, 1999nd addiction problems during their lives, and yet they have risen above their difficulties to produce engaging, expressive and uplifting visual art that has enriched those who view it. The gallery has hosted exhibitions from leading Irish artists and galleries, from the permanent art collection at SPUH.

All at Sea features leading Irish and British artists who have produced work with a nautical theme. The works are varied in influence ranging from literature and social/political to the pure depiction of nature and the landscape in which we live. The exhibition includes work by John Bellany, Barrie Cooke, William Crozier, Stephen McKenna and Michael Mulcahy.
