This year's Stations of the Cross Exhibition, presented by Wesley Uniting Church Perth and The Uniting Church in the City, will be held from 27th March to 6th April at the corner of Hay and William Streets, Perth. The exhibition will be open daily from 9am to 5pm.
Stations of the Cross is a devotional depiction of Christ's final hours, death and resurrection. The Easter story is one of forgiveness, mercy and immeasurable love that cuts through ugliness and despair, bringing light and hope. A second chance; a new beginning.
Fifteen West Australian artists, as in previous years, have been challenged to select a Station and create art that captures the artist's interpretation of the Easter narrative. Powerful analogies with elements of the biblical story are drawn from social issues, such as Aboriginal deaths in custody, Australians on death row in Bali and the experiences of Australian diggers in the two World Wars. Collectively, the artworks speak of the true meaning and spirit of Easter.

Although drawn from the Christian tradition, the exhibition would appeal to anyone interested in supporting West Australian artists and in art that explores the human condition.
