A Public Art Exhibition in the Anglican Chapel
Nunhead Cemetery, Linden Grove, SE15 3LW
Open 11am-5pm Saturdays & Sundays throughout September 2013.
A Public Art exhibition celebrating the art of stained glass windows with contemporary responses by 11 artists installed in the empty windows of the Restored Anglican Chapel in Nunhead Cemetery. Sally Buchanan's contemporary response is to fill the larger windows with mobile phone apps, whilst Richard Tilbury is bringing out the beauty of the 2 smaller windows using fused glass. In the alcoves, Anna Whyatt and Jolanta Jagiello are utilizing textile patterns to highlight the mosaics nature of stained glass windows.
In the main chapel windows, Ahmed Farooqui and Jill Rock will be focusing on the amazing colours that are reflected in the stained glass designs. Elisabeta Chojak-Mysko will be concentrating on figurative subject matter found in church windows, whilst Debora Mo will be emphasing their more symbolic nature. Reverend Edward Olsworth-Peter and Assistant Curate Sara Scott from St Augustine's church on One Tree Hill are sharing their unique perspective, whilst Robert Aldous is reminding us that unlike paintings stained glass windows can be viewed both from the inside and outside.
The exhibition is curated by Jolanta Jagiello in association of Friends of Nunhead Cemetery and is part funded by Southwark Council Community Fund for the workshop. Open all Weekends in September from 11am-5pm, including Open House Weekend, 21st-22nd September 2013 when Richard Tilbury will be running a fused glass workshop, and open during the Nunhead Art Trail, 28th-29th September 2013 until 6pm.
