We are delighted to present to you a Resurrection Exhibition to celebrate our faith and the central Feast of Christ’s Death and Resurrection.
It is a re-working and follow on of an exhibition that was held in the Jesuit Hurtado Centre, Wapping and the Mount Street Jesuit Centre, over two weekends in April 2017.
The initative was pioneered by a very dedicated team at the Hurtado Centre and held in conjunction with the artists of St Patrick’s Studios, based in the parish in Wapping. It has brought together nearly 30 artists from different Christian denominations and artistic backgrounds in a very joyful project.
The aims were to give a taste of the Resurrection as an invitation of the restoration that God offers every day to all humanity, to taste what it is like to be restored in the fullness of life in Christ.
We hope that the richness of the works exhibited now here at Our Lady of Dolours will give a felt sense of the beauty of the Resurrection.
A full online catalogue of all the original exhibition can be found on the Hurtado Centre website. Although we have not been able to hang all the original works two new artists have joined us.
We include here the introductions for the Hurtado exhibition and its four sections, Suffering and Sin, Figures of the Resurrection, The Life and Death of Christ and The Resurrection and the Glorious Christ written by Fr Damian Howard SJ. In this space we have mixed up works from these four sections.
With special thanks to Rebecca Morgan, Clarisa Reichhard, Buki Fatona, Br Stephen Power SJ, Fr John Moffat SJ and all the artists for exhibiting.
We are extremely grateful to the Servite Friars for enabling us to continue with this exhibition in the beautiful setting of the colonnade which will allow many more people to see it. The exhibition is open to September 2017.
