Sarum College’s visual arts programme includes exhibitions throughout the year. We occasionally have displays of the sketches, drawings and maquettes of sculptures in Salisbury Cathedral exhibitions and opportunities for local arts groups and schools to show their work.
Art speaks to everyone. As part of the divine process of creativity, reflecting on the Christian message in the context of creativity can be a profoundly spiritual process, as well as one which stretches and challenges our preconceptions about the world.
Sarum College celebrates art for beauty, pleasure and learning. The art, the building and those working, visiting and learning here are woven together as there is no dedicated gallery space. The College offers a wide range of arts-related courses to complement the visual arts programme.
Exhibitions are free and open to the public daily. Opening hours are Monday through Saturday, 9am to 5pm and Sundays 10am to 2pm.
For more information about art exhibitions at Sarum College, contact Christine Nielsen-Craig, director of development and marketing at Sarum College.
Transforming Lives Through Portrait Therapy
Friday 11 November 2016 to Saturday 7 January 2017
Artist, art therapist and researcher Dr Susan Carr presents more than 30 painted portraits co-designed with patients living with life-threatening and chronic illnesses. For Susan, portraiture is a way of knowing and being when severe illness disrupts a person’s sense of identity.
