This week St Hugh’s is hosting an exhibition of paintings by Tim Halliday, a retired Professor of Biology who specialises in the behaviour and conservation of amphibians. He has painted birds, frogs and toads all his life as a hobby.
In 2016 he was diagnosed with incurable T-cell lymphoma, and has had a variety of treatments since then including many bouts of chemotherapy. During his treatment he has had a flurry of artistic creativity, and Tim thought he might capitalise on this by having a show of his paintings with the aim of raising money for charity.
The exhibition is raising money for the Julian Starmer-Smith Lymphoma Fund, a local charity that supports doctors researching this disease. Mrs Starmer-Smith, mother of Julian, will attend the show.
The public can visit the exhibition between 10am and 12 noon, and 2pm-5pm every day up to and including Tuesday 11th September, except on Saturday 8th, when the exhibition will be open from 10am until 4pm.
Tim will be offering high quality giclée prints for order and cards for sale on the spot.
