Professor Patrick G Johnston's Portrait

All Staff email regarding Professor Patrick G Johnston's Portrait

Dear Colleague

Last year, the University commissioned a portrait of our late Vice-Chancellor, Professor Patrick Johnston, to recognise his significant contribution to Queen’s. 

On Saturday, I was honoured to host an event at Riddel Hall to unveil the portrait, which was attended by Paddy’s family and friends and the artist, Mr Gareth Reid. 

The portrait will hang permanently in the Great Hall alongside those of our former Vice-Chancellors and Chancellors.  However, as the Great Hall is being refurbished, the portrait is currently on display alongside the University’s silver collection at the main entrance of the Naughton Gallery, Lanyon Building. 

Everyone is welcome to view the portrait. 

Best Wishes

Professor Ian Greer
President and Vice-Chancellor
