Talented Grantham artists to showcase their work
A group of 17 artists from Grantham College are exhibiting as a creative collective in T.I.E.D, a visual arts exhibition being held at St Wulfram’s Church.
The exhibition, which runs from Wednesday, June 15 to Wednesday, June 22, will explore the infinite possibilities of leaving a trace; an imprint; or an echo in an increasingly displaced and fractured world.
A variety of themes will be featured within the exhibition including political and social identity, memory, perceptions of reality and transitions through time. Other artists will explore more personal themes, looking at their own fears and the hurdles they wish to overcome.
These will all be explored through a range of mediums including paint, print, graphic art, photography, installation, animation and sculpture.
Rector of St Wulfram’s Church, Father Stuart Cradduck, said: “St Wulfram’s has been a place of Christian pilgrimage and prayer for over a thousand years, and through its long history has been the central point for community gatherings, both sacred and secular.
“We at St Wulfram’s are delighted to be able to offer this sacred space to showcase the amazing work by the students of Grantham College. After visiting the exhibition at the college for the last two years, I know that the standard of work is exceptional and is a real opportunity for these up and coming artists to show their true and innate talent.”
The opening night will be held on Wednesday, next week (June 15) from 5pm to 8pm. Visitors are welcome to come and meet the artists and enjoy a glass of wine on arrival.
Access for the rest of the week-long exhibition is during St Wulfram’s opening hours - 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday. Entry to the exhibition is free at all times.
