Art Exhibitions

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. However, please note that viewing is by prior arrangment until further notice. 

For more information about art exhibitions at Sarum College, contact Christine Nielsen-Craig, director of marketing and communications at Sarum College.
