The Deepest Shade of Green aims to connect our hospitals with the world outside, listening to and learning from those who use them.

University Hospital Galway welcomes the public to an exhibition presenting the work of artists interested in the classification, control and reproduction of the natural world.

Before the fields and gardens of Europe were harvested as part of today’s global pharmaceutical network, 19th Century pharmaceutical knowledge was based on translations of the writings of Greek physician Dioscorides.

In an exploration of plants in modern medicine and traditional herbal remedies, West of Sumer presents botanical art by the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society (UK), Sophia Rosamund Praeger (IE), and Lydia Shackleton (IE), with work by Tom Molloy (IE), Diana Scherer (DE/NL), and Françoise Sergy (CH/UK).
