Cathedral Views...

An exhibition of over 700 pictures of St Edmundsbury Cathedral opens on Saturday 6 June in the Edmund Gallery at the Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds. The pictures have been created by local school children in the latest in a series of art installations by Suffolk school children organised by the Discovery Centre, the Cathedral’s education centre. All the pictures in the exhibition have been inspired by the Cathedral building, which celebrated its centenary in 2014 and which will celebrate in July the 10th anniversary of the completion of the Millennium Tower.

‘The idea for the exhibition came from Suffolk-born John Constable’s famous image of ‘Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows,’ comments Helen Woodroffe, Children’s Education Officer at the Cathedral.

 

‘So we decided to ask local children to create small scale pictures of their own Cathedral using digital art as well as conventional collage layering techniques.’

 

The reaction of the children to this project can be summed up in the following comment from one young budding artist whose picture is in the exhibition, ‘Wow, the Cathedral is amazing, I want to draw all of it.’

The exhibition is open daily from Saturday 6 June to Wednesday 17 June (9.30 am-5.30 pm weekdays, 9.30 am-3.30 pm Saturdays and 11 am-3 pm Sundays). Admission free.
