Some 5000 years after the Sumerians scribed the first herbal preparations in clay, today’s global pharmaceutical network still harvests the fields and gardens of Europe and synthesises nature in the quest to heal.

In an exploration of plants used in modern medicine and traditional herbal remedies, University Hospital Galway hosts an exhibition of botanical art and photographs by artists interested in the classification, control and reproduction of the natural world.

Following the guidance issued by the Government of Ireland on 12 March in relation to measures to contain COVID-19, please be advised of the visiting restrictions in place at hospitals in the Saolta Group. Whilst West of Sumer remains closed to the general public, the exhibition has been extended to 20 September 2020 and is open to all hospital patients and frontline workers.
