Art exhibition at Salisbury Cathedral

Reflection, is a spectacular exhibition featuring specially made pieces by nine internationally known artists working with glass now open at Salisbury Cathedral.

The exhibition explores the theme of reflection both as a visual response to the Cathedral’s beautiful medieval building and as a stimulus for meditative reflection.

The exhibition is curated by Jacquiline Creswell, the Cathedral’s Visual Arts Advisor, and Rebecca Newnham, a sculptor who works with glass. Other artists featured in this superb exhibition are Galia Amsel, Sabrina Cant, Amy Cushing, Sally Fawkes, Olivia Fink, Richard Jackson, Louis Thompson and Sylvie Vandenhoucke.

Lemon Street Gallery is working in collaboration with gallery artists Sally Fawkes , Richard Jackson and Salisbury Cathedral Exhibitions to bring this exhibition to our members. Exhibitions like Reflection play a significant role in the life of the Cathedral, communicating its wider message and providing a stimulus for their outreach work, in which ideas related to the work and ethos of the Cathedral are explored.

Canon Dr. Robert Titley, Canon Treasurer at the Cathedral and chair of the Arts Committee said:

“Art often serves to speak of the things we find hard to put into words and can, in an instant, speak volumes. The art we show in the Cathedral is curated to provoke a spiritual response and encourage the viewer to examine the carefully chosen themes around which a work is built – in this case the spiritual power of reflection.

“There will be many meanings and many views to take away from this extraordinary exhibition and we hope the images and context will stay with people for a long time. As St. Paul said ‘we see in a mirror dimly but then we will see face to face’. When, as in this exhibition, the two sorts of reflections come together, the purely physical movement of light creates in our mind’s eye something rich, something new and unique, perhaps even a reflection of God and the glory that awaits us.”

Lemon Street Gallery is pleased to be able to offer the work of Sally Fawkes and Richard Jackson in Reflection at Salisbury Cathedral for sale during the exhibition.
