The public environment at St Andrews Community Hospital has been enhanced with the addition of 29 original works of art.

The diverse display, which will be on show for two years, has been taken from the collection of the Art in Healthcare charity, with support from the Morton Trust, and features creations from celebrated artists including Archie Suttie Watt and current President of the Royal Scottish Academy, Arthur Watson. The exhibition also features a work by Culross artist Theresa Kane, who works at the local pottery and gallery.

Honorary Art Convenor of NHS Fife, John Wilson, commented:

"These pictures enhance the artwork collection already displayed in the hospital, which has been built up over many years by purchases funded from the hospital's Endowment Funds, donations from local artists, and from the Fife Art Exhibition."

Hospital Services Manager, Lynn Barker, added:

"The local team were able to choose art to be displayed in the hospital from the extensive Art in Healthcare catalogue and we are sure patients, visitors and staff will all find something appealing from the selection. We are very grateful to Art in Healthcare and to the Morton Trust for their generous sponsorship."
