The painting will be part of an exhibition that will run until September 15 and will feature the artist’s work at the Seven Hills Gallery in the hospital’s Huntsman Building.
The artwork was donated to the Trust as a token of gratitude to the NHS and was created by Lauren, who goes by the artist name MUT in her work.
Living and working locally, Lauren painted prolifically during lockdown and produced many paintings of local landmarks and places loved by people in South Yorkshire.
Lauren said, “I would consider myself new to the art world, and was thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to exhibit my paintings at Seven Hills Gallery.”
The unveiling was attended by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Chief Executive Kirsten Major.
Kirsten said: “I was delighted to officially open the exhibition and unveil the painting of the artwork Clocktower that Lauren Woodcock donated to us. I would like to thank Laurent for his gesture of appreciation. The Clock Tower is an iconic building and holds a special place in the history of the city of Sheffield. We hope to display it in a prominent place on a permanent basis in order to allow as many people as possible to admire this fabulous gift once the exhibition at the gallery is over.
The framing and installation of this piece was coordinated by the Arts in Health team and funded by donors from the Sheffield Hospitals Charity.
