This innovative art gallery, located on the 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th levels of the bridges connecting the diagnostic and nursing towers, displays works by some of Saskatchewan’s most talented artists. Works are on sale and displays change every three months.
The Palliative Care Gallery was created by former Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation CEO, Randy Kershaw, to benefit the Foundation’s Kershaw Palliative Care Endowment. The endowment supports programs and equipment purchases for palliative care at Saskatoon City Hospital. Through the endowment, the Foundation recently purchased materials and resources for three roving palliative care carts, reflecting the changing nature of Saskatoon City Hospital.
Since 2011, the gallery, located in the atrium at Saskatoon City Hospital, has featured works by acclaimed wildlife photographer, Jason Leo Bantle. A researcher, eco-guide and educator, Jason became interested in photography while completing his Master of Science degree. He’s travelled extensively across Canada, capturing the country’s beauty.
Images at the Palliative Care Gallery are for sale through the Foundation office and are frequently changed, so visit often. Jason’s books can be found in the Saskatoon City Hospital Gift Shoppe.
