Art for Evensong Exhibition

 

Exhibitions Rochester A4E Altar 3Mb

Rochester Cathedral, Altar

Inspired by Choral Evensong at Rochester Cathedral, I created a series of prints, a visual journey through the service, which I called ‘Celebrating Evensong’.  I was thrilled when asked by the Dean & Chapter of Rochester Cathedral to enlarge the images and to paint them onto canvas banners measuring 1.35 x 2.5m, so they could hang in the Choir Transepts.

They were there from October 2012 to January 2013.  Subsequently the exhibition travelled to three more English Cathedrals, visiting St German, Peel, Isle of Man in 2013, followed in 2014 by Worcester and finally Bradford. The photographs below show the exhibition at each location.
