During Easter 2017 the Hurtado Jesuit Centre in partnership with Farm Street Jesuit Church, and St Patrick’s Studios will be hosting an exhibition on the Resurrection. The exhibition is an opportunity for contemporary artists to display work that reflects Christianity and an opportunity for everyone else to appreciate the wonderful work that is going on often behind the scenes!
The exhibition is an attempt to help people rediscover the beauty of the mysteries of the world and God. The effort is truly worth making. As Benedict XVI said ‘Art is elemental. Reason alone as it’s expressed in the sciences can’t be man’s complete answer to reality, and it can’t express everything that man can, wants to, and has to express. I think God built this into man. Art along with science is the highest gift God has given him.’
