Art at St Andrew's
Every year we are delighted to host an exhibition in the church as part of Oxfordshire Artweeks. This year, the event will run from Saturday 4th to Sunday 12th May.
We welcome six artists this year, five of whom are new to us.
Amy Surman: handmade silver jewellery using traditional and contemporary methods;
Annabel Eyres: paper cuts and prints of the human form in motion;
Nelly Stanbury: wheel-thrown and hand-built stoneware ceramics;
Prinkie Roberts: stitched textile wall-hangings exploring colour, form and abstract concepts;
Satnam Bains: unique stoneware ceramic sculptures, with traditional and contemporary finishes;
Tom Arran Skinner: landscape and ‘kitchenscape’ oil paintings.
Amy will again offer her popular silver metal clay jewellery workshop on Saturdays 4th and 11th with an additional week-day workshop on Thursday 9th. Please contact Amy directly on 01865 774298 to book your place.
On Wednesday 8th May, Fr Tim Howles will lead a presentation and discussion evening on the theme of “representing faith”. How have Christians, past and present, sought to express what they belief in art, music and other media? This event is intended for everyone in the community, whether you have a “faith” or not! Drinks and nibbles from 7.30pm, the presentation will start at 8.00pm and we will be done by 9.00pm sharp! This event is free and there is no need to book; just turn up on the night!
If you would like to volunteer to meet our visitors, do sign up on the rota on the tract table in May. If you can give just one hour of your time, it helps to share the welcome and it’s a great opportunity to meet people and make new friends. Our local Headington and Marston trail map will also be available and this will have a full list of all the exhibitors in our area. So, do invite family and friends to come along to our 8th Annual exhibition. See you there!
