Now in its 5th year The Art of Caring is needed more than ever to show support for Nurses, Carers, and the NHS. This is your chance to exhibit an artwork that demonstrates your passion for this theme. If this is your first time then check out Anna Bowman's documentary film about last year's exhibition HERE.

The Art of Caring is split into two clear exhibitions.
The first is at St George's Hospital (May 2019) where printed postcards of your artwork are displayed on the walls of the hospital to help celebrate International Nurses Day. This is an inclusive exhibition.
The second is at St Pancras Hospital (July - October 2019) and uses a mixture of original artworks and printed postcards. Works will be selected by the Arts Project curators Peter Herbert and Elaine Harper-Gay.

It is Free to enter.
Send up to 3 jpeg images at an A6 size to

We are looking for artworks about Care and/or Caring but also consider the theme for International Nurses Day this year..... Health for All.

You will receive a confirmation email within 7 days with your catalogue/exhibition numbers.
Before the exhibition we will print 2 postcards of each of your artworks. One copy will be sent to you and the other will be exhibited at St George's Hospital, Tooting, UK in May, 2019.

Deadline for submissions is 7th April 2019
(We may close early if all 400 exhibition spaces are filled)

Alban Low, Bryan Benge, Dean Reddick and Stuart Simler

The exhibition is once again kindly supported by Supported by Kingston University and St George's, University of London
Will my work be selected?
We are working with the artists' collective, CollectConnect, who specialise in inclusive exhibitions. We aim to include at least one artwork by each artist but if you send us 3 then we hope to include them all. We have a 'First come-First served' policy, this sometimes means we close before the deadline. See full details below*

Keep it Simple
Send your images to and be part of the exhibition!
*We want to represent ourselves and other artists sympathetically and honestly.

The exhibition is totally Free to enter, as an artist and viewer.

We operate an open selection policy, so artists are free from rejection. It is your responsibility to choose what work is appropriate.

We have a 'First come-First served' policy. Sometimes this means we close before the deadline.

Our artists range through all ages, colours, backgrounds, and all skill levels are welcome.

We hope that you'll take this opportunity to express yourself within the theme and occupy the public realm with your artistic voice but we reserve the right to refuse any work that is offensive or inappropriate in the public domain. We have never had to do this and often find a solution that's tailored to the situation.
