The Stations of the Cross is an annual art exhibition that views the story of Easter through an artistic lens. Now in its eighth year, it is proudly supported by the City of Perth and the Wesley Uniting Church, and has become a highlight of the local art community calendar. It will be at the Wesley Uniting Church at 97 William Street in Perth from Saturday the 8th of April to Monday the 17th of April.
Entrance to the exhibition will be free and it will be open from 9am to 5pm daily. The show is being curated by Claire Bushby and will feature artwork from fifteen carefully chosen Western Australian artists. The artists were personally invited to participate in the exhibition and to create works to appear in the show. The artists were asked to follow the religious narrative of Easter and the ritual of the 'Stations of the Cross' but to also explore the human experiences and themes that underlie it.
The exhibition aims to focus on the embodiment of humanity and hopes to engage in an interfaith dialogue about loss, grief, oppression and mortality. The show will feature paintings, sculptures and textiles.
Stations of the Cross 2017 will be showing artwork from the following artists:
Nathan Beard Celene Bridge Kristi Chua Pinjes
Mel Dare Moira de la Hunty Eva Fernandez
Emily Ten Raa
Jana Wallace Braddock
Stations of the Cross is suitable for all ages. The exhibition will be officially opened on Friday the 7th of April by Professor Ted Snell from the University of Western Australia. Wesley Uniting Church invites people to come along. There will be a bread and wine supper served on the night. If you are interested in coming along please RSVP to the Uniting Church City Office by the 3rd of April 2017. You can ring 6103 4222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
