commission4mission @ St Martin-in-the-Fields
Our exhibition designed to encourage the commissioning of contemporary Christian art opens in the Crypt Gallery at St Martin-in-the-Fields on Monday 4 July. Sixteen commission4mission artists will show 40 works in a variety of media, including concept drawings, fused glass, paintings, reliefs and textiles.
Jonathan Evens, secretary of commission4mission, explains: ‘This exhibition demonstrates some of the ways commissioned art can be used to enhance a place of worship and add another dimension to a church’s mission.’
Contributing artists include Adam Boulter, Harvey Bradley, Colin Burns, Ally Clarke, Anne Creasey, Valerie Dean, Jonathan Evens, Viki Isherwood-Metzler, Mark Lewis, Nadiya Pavliv-Tokarska, Caroline Richardson, Janet Roberts, Henry Shelton, Sergiy Shkanov, Joy Rousell Stone and Peter Webb. Some of the work is for sale, and enquiries are invited. The exhibition will also include examples of some completed commissions and information about the commissioning process.
The exhibition continues each day until 17 July. Open 10.00am - 8.00pm. Private View: Monday 4 July from 6.00 - 8.00pm. RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org.
