Picturing Faith: An exhibition of the Methodist Modern Art Collection.
A rare opportunity to view a world class collection of modern art including works by Graham Sutherland and Elisabeth Frink.
One of the UKs most significant collections of modern Christian Art is to go on display at The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge in Canterbury. The Methodist Modern Art Collection is a unique gathering of art which has toured the UK and abroad since its inception over forty years ago. Over 40 works will be on display at The Beaney, including work by acclaimed artists Graham Sutherland, Elisabeth Frink, Edward Burra and Patrick Heron.
All works depict Biblical stories and images and a fascinating variety of painting techniques are on display: oil, acrylic, watercolours, natural pigments and ink, aquatint, gouache and Ripolin enamel. In addition, a few works in linocut, pencil and engraved woodblock bring contrasting textures to the eye.
Delivered in partnership with and sponsored by Kent College, the exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to view one of the most significant collections of contemporary religious art in Europe in its entirety.
The special exhibition will be accompanied by a series of associated events, including a range of lectures and a learning programme.
