Catriona Smith, Alban Low, Jeff Hunter and Sam M Harley - Art of Caring 2020

Welcome to the Art of Caring 2020. Today we introduce the work of 4 artists who have contributed work to this year's exhibition.... Catriona Smith, Alban Low, Jeff Hunter and Sam M Harley. The Art of Caring is an annual inclusive international art exhibition celebrating Nurses, Midwives, Carers, and the NHS. Thank you to the School of Nursing at Kingston University for their support.

Alban Low
"It has been heartening the way that so many people have cared for each other during the pandemic. We have all made sacrifices that will never be acknowledged."
Alban Low is involved in many creative projects, these include album artwork, publishing chapbooks, making films, maps, conceptual exhibitions, live performance and good old drawing. He is artist-in-residence at the School of Nursing, Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education at Kingston University and St George's University of London. Low spends his evenings in the jazz clubs of London where he captures the exhilaration of live performances in his sketchbook. On Wednesday evenings he sketches the performers on the radio show A World in London at Resonance FM. During the 2020 Lockdown he made his first radio programme, The All Vinyl A to Z of Africa.

Catriona Smith
"Thank you so much for all that you have done during this pandemic, for everything you did before and for the many you will continue to help after this. I truly hope  that Nurses and Carers will finally get the recognition, respect and financial support they deserve after this."
Catriona Smith is a Glasgow-based multimedia artist who creates a range of work using different mediums such as photography, performance, comedy, spoken word,
 events and scriptwriting.  She believes in the importance of play and experimentation and loves finding new ways to present creatively what she wants to articulate. The work she does looks to include and engage her audience, bringing people together, inspiring
 positive emotional and social change.
