Heather Gregg, of Re:Connect:
“This small 4 day exhibition reimagines and recovers the wonder of that first Easter – a tumultuous 24 hours in Jesus Christ’s life. Together, we travel through themes of injustice, betrayal, loss, suffering and into great love and hope. I hope that the exhibition provides space to enjoy the works of local artists, reimagine the Easter Passion story, contemplate, and rest”
Bishop Mark Strange:
“Here in the Cathedral we are attempting to provide a spiritual resource for the people of Inverness, the Highlands and Moray. We have a full programme of worship and other activities during Holy Week and Easter of which this is a part and I would like to invite anyone who is curious to come and see what Heather has created, to spend some time in the Cathedral and to join us for the events of Holy Week and Easter”
The Cathedral is open from 8.30am daily and will close following the daily 7.30 pm Eucharist/Reflection during Holy Week. The exhibition is available to view while the Cathedral is open.
The majority of exhibits are made by Highlands-based artists and poets in an exciting mix of artistic media with wide appeal.
There is an audio guide (soon to be available on the Art of Easter Facebook page) which includes a rich mix of artists’ commentaries, poetry and readings of Bible witness accounts of the first Easter, read by volunteers from a wide variety of local churches. (The French and Spanish audio guides contain the Bible accounts).
This year’s exhibition follows the success of last year’s “Love, loss, hope: the Art of Easter 2014” held in King’s Factory, Smithton.
