Summer Art Exhibitions
13 December 2018 – 21 February 2019
The final rotation of art exhibitions for 2018 will see five incredible displays fill the corridors of the Hospital from Thursday 13 December to Thursday 21 February 2019.
The Art Program uses the visual arts in all forms to transform Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick into a place of wonder and respite, creating dialogues between artists and patients. Through the Collection and Exhibition Program, the Art Program also provides opportunities for emerging artists to showcase their talents.
Many of the artworks on display are available to purchase, with a portion of each sale going to support the Foundation. For more information about purchasing artworks please contact the Art Program by phone 02 9382 1188 or email email@example.com.
Create and Make
“Create and Make” is a collaboration between patients and siblings and the creative programs which work across Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network; including the Art Program at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, the Youth Art Workers at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and the the Ngala Nanga Mai pARenT Program at the La Perouse Community Health Centre. The Programs have transformed illustrations made by participants into beautiful tea towels, tote bags and aprons. Limited editions of each product will be available to purchase, with all proceeds contributing to the fundraising efforts of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation.

Randwick Art Society
Filling the corridor of Level 1 is a collection of artworks from the members of the Randwick Art Society. Founded in 2009 by a group of local artists, their vision was an Art Society where like-minded people could meet, learn, exhibit and share their common interest in art. Together they are committed to contributing to the growth and development of art and culture within our local community, the Sydney Eastern Suburbs and wider Sydney.
