Pop-up Art Gallery launches at The Orchard Centre, Hull

Patients and service users at CHP’s Orchard Centre in Hull are enjoying an exhibition celebrating the city's history.

The Orchard Centre in Hull

Hull in Paint is organised by Hull Civic Society and features paintings from local artists.   The artwork takes inspiration from Hull’s unique heritage and gives a portrait of the city chosen as UK City of Culture 2017. 

Supporting Hull In Paint

The Orchard Centre was one of the first venues to host Hull in Paint in 2014, and has returned to the centre this year following positive feedback from visitors.

Ian Goodison, Vice Chairman of Hull Civic Society, commented: “The Orchard Centre is a stunning venue to host Hull in Paint. The exhibition fits in so well with the modern architecture and compliments the art that appears in the décor of the building.  It is also a major hub for the community and the welcoming reception and forecourt area is a prime location for visitors to see and interact with the art on display.”

The exhibition has been on display since 20 July and will continue until Monday (10 August).

The Orchard Centre was developed by public private partnership Citycare and opened in 2009.  The centre integrates health, social and community services under one roof, including GPs, dentistry and council customer services.
