A hospital in Gwent has brought the outside inside with an art exhibition showcasing the best of the natural world.

The picture gallery in the main outpatient facility at Nevill Hall Hospital is currently showcasing images by the Gwent Wildlife Trust. The trust covers the area from the lower Wye to the Rhymney river in south east Wales and manages more than 30 nature reserves and two education centres. Currently, one of its biggest projects is centred on the former steelworks site in Ebbw Vale and this post-industrial region is the inspiration for this series of photographs.

A spokesman for Gwent Arts in Health, which has organised the exhibition, said: “This show is the 25th in a series of exhibitions in and around Nevill Hall Hospital. Gwent Arts in Health is a local charity that aims to help realise the potential of the arts in promoting health and wellbeing.”
