Art Exhibition goes to Belfast

The Saving Faces Art Exhibition, a collection of over 100 portraits by artist Mark Gilbert, went on the road in 2014. Showing in Southampton, Exeter and finally Belfast.

Mr Peter Ramsay-Baggs, a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at the Ulster Hospital, was responsible for bringing the work to Northern Ireland for the first time.

‘I’m interested in art and I saw this as a way of bringing art into science and showing how portraiture can achieve what photography can’t.’

Arts journalist, Jane Coyle reviewed the exhibition for

‘This exhibition is an eloquent evocation of the blurred line that exists between art and science, wherein the patient becomes the art work. An unbreakable creative affinity has been forged between artist and surgeon, brush and scalpel.’

The Saving Faces Art Exhibition showed at the Naughton Gallery at Queen’s University Belfast from 3rd of December 2014 to the 1st of February 2015.
