Sarum Artists Exhibition: Interpretation (Closing Date)

Mon 8 January 2018
This contemporary art exhibition by the Sarum Artists group is based around the theme of interpretation. Interpretation is an essential part in the creation of art. It is an entirely subjective process so imposes no boundaries on the creator, or the witness, of the art. Each should gain by their own personal judgement. The theme of this exhibition was chosen to stimulate discussion and hopefully, be a challenge to the individual artist and the observer. If you find it stimulating,… Read more

Sat 24 March 2018, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Do humans suffer because of power struggles to dominate by sciences, technologies, religions, faiths and associated economic and cultural globalisations? While science-based technologies have sought to serve human needs, religious faiths have sought to provide values and cultural identities.

Fortunately history demonstrates that humans can be very creative, resilient and realistic in the right environments for human… Read more

The Poet as Priest: David Jones

Fri 11 May 2018, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Have you ever considered how a poet can also have a priestly function?

The notion of the poet as shaman, as a mediator between the human world and the spirit world, is a very ancient and ubiquitous one. Although officially these roles have been separated in the Christian… Read more

Sat 19 May 2018, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Money, so familiar and so essential in our lives, and so mysterious, turns out to be one of our principal languages. Just like words on a page, the coins, notes and figures on our bank statements are symbols of meaning, relationship and value. But what does money really signify? Does it actually rest on a mountain of debt – and how precarious is that mountain in the light of recent ‘financial crises’? How do we negotiate the system we call money?… Read more
