Sarum College’s visual arts programme includes two major exhibitions a year. In between we 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.
Sarum College celebrates art for beauty, pleasure and learning. The art, the building and those working, visiting and learning here are integrated in imaginative ways 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.
“Art speaks to everyone,” says Maggie Guillebaud, associate chaplain at the College. “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.”
Guillebaud, a former member of the Arts Council of England and chair of the South West Arts Council, Curatorial Consultant Rachel Bebb of The Garden Gallery in Hampshire and Christine Nielsen-Craig, director of development and communications at Sarum College, coordinate Sarum’s arts programme.
This remarkable exhibition showcases the sculptor Anthony Abrahams’ latest venture into new technology through a series of drawings produced on an iPad. Artists are forever seeking new ways to communicate their vision, and are not slow to grasp what the latest technologies have to offer. A first for Sarum College. Limited edition prints will be for sale.
Anthony Abrahams is an eminent British sculptor. He has recently turned to an exploration of printing methods including iPrints, drypoint and monoprints. He is represented by Gallery Pangolin.
