The Art Scope gallery in the stunning atrium at CircleReading provides the ideal space for the display of contemporary art. We have 100 pieces of art on show. This is the largest collection of affordable art on permanent display in Reading. All the art is for sale and all profits go to the charity – Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.The gallery resides in the heart of the CircleReading hospital. Our aim is to improve the therapeutic experience for patients at CircleReading. A recent survey of patients in 3 London hospitals showed 9 out of 10 people believed that art improved the hospital environment. 75% believed that art made them feel more relaxed.

“As I come into this beautiful space, I feel that someone thinks I am important, that someone cares about the experience I will have and that ultimately someone will care for me because I am not one of a long tedious line of anonymous patients…instead I am someone special”..
