Let There Be Light: An exhibition of artwork inspired by stained-glass windows
Wed 18 May at 10:00 am until 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until Tue 31 May, 2022
An exhibition of over 20 pieces by local artist, Shelley Ashkowski, celebrating the history and beauty of churches, cathedrals and abbeys. Each piece is inspired by the stunning architecture of these buildings as well as many intricate studies of stained glass windows including one of Bath Abbey’s magnificent Great East Window which tells the story of Jesus’ life in 56 scenes. Much of the collection uses acrylic gouache paint, specifically chosen for its high pigmentation and matt finish to provide vibrant colours. Some are also embellished with gold leaf gilding to add opulence to the finished work. Newly commissioned exhibition merchandise will be available in the Abbey shop, including prints, cards and a selection of stationery items. Available to view during Bath Abbey’s opening times; visitors are invited to make a donation at the door on admission.
