Our Heroes

August 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - August 31, 2020 @ 4:00 pm


York artist Karen Winship pays tribute to the tireless and selfless work of NHS workers in this moving exhibition of portraits created during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 11 works on show depict NHS workers from across England and Ireland painted by Karen and tell their own personal experiences of working on the front line caring for the victims of the virus.

The stories of those working or volunteering in other essential services during the pandemic will also be told as the gallery invites the public to nominate their own heroes.

The exhibition will open on August 1 as part of Our Heroes Welcome, as York says thank you to all of the essential workers working during the pandemic.
