Jonathan Evens’ ‘Stations of the Cross’ meditations are being used, for the second year running, by the Northwood and Northwood Hill Art Stns. This community art project involves a trail of artworks exploring some of the events in the final hours of Jesus’ life. The artworks include paintings, photographic exhibits, drapes, metal sculpture and collages and, after display during Holy Week at various community locations, are now gathered together for display at Fairfield Church until 12th April (daily, 9.00 am – 12 noon). Each artwork will be accompanied by one of Jonathan’s meditations and an explanation from the artist. The Northwood and Northwood Hills Art Stns are part of a passion for life. Admission is free.

Sarah Ollerenshaw is planning towards a solo show in May at St Peter’s Notting Hill. “the gallery” is a new contemporary art space in the heart of Notting Hill housed in the newly refurbished St Peter`s church. The space is unique in that it is in the centre of a thriving community and is surrounded by existing architectural and artistic features. The ambition of “the gallery” is to support new and existing creative talent in all mediums from painting and sculpture to installations, film-making and music. The church family want to embrace the arts and to help the local community enjoy, learn and be inspired by events and shows which all will be welcome to attend. Sarah is also anticipating her work being included in Icon? The Art of Faith at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery in the autumn.
