Gosford Private Hospital has launched a School Art Project.
The project came about as part of the Hospital’s staff driven, Love Your Idea program, after a staffer suggested that parts of the hospital could be freshened up with some art.
This idea grew into the School Art Project which has seen the Hospital partner with St Edwards College Visual Art students to create a series of pieces that reflect the theme ‘life on the Coast’.
The first lot of artworks were unveiled at the end of September with plans to expand the project to other schools around the Gosford area.
“Created by Year 10 and 11 students, the artworks incorporate photos of local destinations Long Jetty, Umina, Somersby Falls, Patonga Lookout, Terrigal Beach and The Haven.
“The photos are overlaid with Japanese woodblock carvings depicting the ‘coming of age’ of 19th Century artists, Hiroshige and Hokusai, in a tribute to Gosford’s sister city relationship with Edogawa, Japan,” said hospital CEO, Matt Kelly.
