A-level students from Southgate School have teamed up for the second year in a row with North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust to launch an art exhibition on the theme of mental health.

The Art Show in the Atrium, of over a dozen works produced by 17 -19 year-old students, opened on Thursday 31 January in the Edmonton hospital’s main atrium and will be on display for six weeks until 16 March.

Around 30 students, teachers, parents and guests attended a “private viewing” of the exhibition, on the theme of mental health, from 12.00-1.00pm on Thursday 31 January.

Art teacher, Annabelle Dawson, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for our students to strengthen the link made last year with their local hospital where many of them, their friends and families have received care. Southgate School is proud that they are staging this exhibition and are showing off their fantastic artwork in such a great location and that it will be viewed by thousands of local people over the coming weeks.”

Richard Gourlay, Director of Strategic Development at North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust said: ‘”We are delighted to be hosting this art show for a second time and displaying the work of these talented students. It’s great to see that they have chosen ‘mental health’ as their theme for this year’s event. Art in hospitals can help improve health and wellbeing, and we are sure that our staff, patients and visitors will benefit from seeing this art in our atrium.”

The exhibition explores aspects of emotional and mental health. The works include figurative and abstract works, portraiture and symbolism and uses a range of mixed media, mono-prints, images of expressive faces, urban landscapes and symbolic fruit combined to reflect the students’ own personal understanding of mental wellbeing.

Student Alex aged 17, whose assertive portrait illustrates the importance of raising awareness on gender identity is featured in the exhibition’s promotional posters, said:  “This experience of exhibiting my own work, expressing personal ideas and engaging with a diverse audience feels as though it’s just the start of an exciting career within the arts. We all really appreciate the opportunity”.

The launch event included a drawing workshop by sixth formers from the school in Sussex Way, Cockfosters.
