Popular cathedral show extended
4:27pm Wednesday 7th November 2012 in Entertainments
GREG Tricker’s exhibition Pillars of Faith at Salisbury Cathedral has proved so popular that its run there has been extended until November 22.
Based on the theme of Saints, who are the “pillars of faith”, the exhibition was due to finish on Sunday.
It involves 33 pieces of contemporary religious art and is a mix of 2D and 3D artworks with stained glass, wood and stone sculptures, wood carvings and paintings.
The Saints represented are some of the most influential men and women in the Christian world and include Mary the mother of Christ, Mary Magdalene, St Francis and St Bernadette.
Exhibition curator Jacquiline Creswell, the cathedral's visual arts adviser, said: “Greg Tricker’s work has proved totally effective in this sacred space and the juxtaposition of his passionate religious art in Salisbury’s beautiful medieval cathedral setting is extraordinarily powerful.”
The cathedral welcomes visitors every day from 9am to 5pm. If you are visiting on a Sunday, recommended viewing times are from noon to 4pm.
