St Patrick's Mental Health Services (SPMHS) invites you to visit our online gallery and to vote for the artwork you most like, as our Favourite Painting exhibition and competition opens for 2020.


Celebrating art and mental health

Favourite Painting is an annual initiative, which displays leading Irish contemporary art pieces from several of the country's most well-known galleries and sees visitors to the exhibition casting votes for their preferred artwork.

Celebrating art and mental health

While the exhibition is usually on show in the Arts Space of St Patrick's University Hospital, this year, our gallery is moving online to bring it to as many people as possible during the current COVID-19 challenge.

Four galleries have submitted 17 pieces from different artists, each with an individual style and uplifting or engaging quality. The exhibition aims to underline the important link between mental health and creative arts, with the winning piece being added to the permanent art collection on display across our campuses. 

You can browse the paintings in our gallery below.

Voting has now closed; the winner will be announced shortly.
