Entitled ‘Pilgrimage’, our exhibition, from 23rd – 30th June (9.00am – 5.00), features work by: Hayley BowenHarvey BradleyIrina BradleyLucy CrabtreeValerie DeanMaryJean DonagheyJonathan EvensMichael GarawayClorinda GoodmanDeborah HarrisonDavid Millidge; and Adeliza Mole. The exhibition includes ceramics, paintings, sculptures and an installation.

Our exhibition gives personal insights into what pilgrimage means to the artists involved. David Millidge has been directly inspired by the martyrdom of St Alban and Irina Bradley has painted an icon of St Alban. Others, however, have treated the theme in terms of pilgrimage more generally or have been inspired by the journeys of other figures from Church history.

Concerts are being held at St Saviour’s during the period of the exhibition on Saturday 23rd and 30th June. Today’s concert begins at 7.30 pm and is ‘An Evening of Sibelius’ by St Albans Symphony Orchestra. More information can be found at http://saso.org.uk/events/an-evening-of-sibelius/. On Saturday 30th June at 7.30 pm St Albans Chamber Choir will perform ‘Light and Love, Music for Midsummer’. More information can be found at http://stalbanschamberchoir.org.uk/.
