Creation - Art Exhibition

"CREATION" - 15-26 October
Open daily 10-5 (except during services); admission free.

This autumn, All Hallows by the Tower will be hosting the art exhibition "Creation", organised by commission4mission, a group which encourages churches to commission contemporary art (www.commission4mission.org).

The title and theme for the exhibition can be understood in terms of emotions, ecology, personal, biblical etc. The artists were encouraged to reflect broadly on the theme, and 25 artists have responded with imagery that ranges from depictions of the Genesis Creation stories to Christ’s birth and our recreation through redemption, by way of flower studies, the creation of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance, and future creation using AI and genetic engineering. A mix of abstract and representational imagery has been created, utilising assemblage, ceramics, digital illustration, drawing, painting, puppetry and sculpture.

The exhibition includes work by Hayley Bowen, Harvey Bradley, Irina Bradley, Lewis Braswell, Cathie Chappell, Valerie Dean, Jonathan Evens, Mary Flitcroft, Maurizio Galia, Michael Garaway, John Gentry, Laura Grenci, Barbara Harris, Deborah Harrison, David Hawkins, Alan Hitching, Anthony Hodgson, Jacek Kulikowski, Mark Lewis, David Millidge, Dorothy Morris, Jacqui Parkinson, Janet Roberts, and Henry Shelton.
