Dialysis patients celebrate creativity

A SWALLOW'S Tale In A Thousand Skies, is an exhibition of “pictures, words and messin’” from dialysis patients and staff in Merlin Park University Hospital.

The exhibition opens in the Galway Arts Centre this Saturday at 2pm and will also feature the launch of the book The Magician and the Swallow’s Tale.

Both the exhibition and book feature works in progress and labours of love. The Magician and the Swallow’s Tale is presented as an illustrated storybook, and features beautiful artworks, designs for crockery and fabric, gardening tips, songs, stories of Connemara, and articles about the anglers’ art of fly-tying.

Both patients and staff are portrayed as something other than the daily roles they play on a dialysis unit.

There will be music and refreshments. Gallery opening hours are 10am to 5.30pm (Mondays to Fridays ) and 10am to 2pm (Saturdays ). The exhibition runs until August 31.
