The Friends of University Hospitals

The McMullen Art Gallery is operated by the Friends of University Hospitals as part of the Arts in Healthcare program. Open since 1986, this public gallery is a haven to which anyone may retreat and relax, reflect, share a quiet visit, or view the latest display of fine visual art and crafts by individual artists, collectives, associations, and organizations. The gallery provides exhibits aimed at inspiring, educating, and engaging our audience.


The McMullen Gallery is currently featuring What’s Before and Behind – paintings from Edmonton artist Patrick Higgins. This exhibit showcases traditional portrait work as well as pieces that work with layering and abstraction to invoke a new story or sense of memory.

Opening Reception: Thursday, October 23 7-9pm.
