'Gift' exhibition - first view

commission4mission’s third exhibition in the setting of St Stephen Walbrook was hung today.

The exhibition, which is entitled ‘Gift’, anticipates the traditional season of giving associated with the Christian festival of Christmas, but is intended as a broad theme open to wider interpretation. commission4mission artists taking part showcase their individual engagements with the theme.

Artists exhibiting are Ally Ashworth, Beverley Barr, Hayley Bowen, Harvey Bradley, Victoria Burton-Davey, Christopher Clack, Valerie Dean, Jonathan Evens, Rob Floyd, Maurizio Galia, John Gentry, Clorinda Goodman,Tim Harrold, Alan Hitching, Anthony Hodgson, Jean Lamb, Mark Lewis, David Millidge,Janet Roberts, Henry Shelton, Sergiy Shkanov and Peter Webb. The work includes assemblages, ceramics, an installation, mosaics, paintings and sculptures. In addition to much of the exhibited work, a range of artist cards (including commission4mission’s Christmas cards) and other craft items are also for sale.

Anita Collier is showing work in the ‘Gift’ exhibition as a guest artist. The work she is showing includes her ‘The Gift’ sculpture as a bronze.

A gift of 10 per cent of the proceeds from sales will be donated to the charity Oasis. commission4mission has made Oasis their charity of choice meaning that charitable giving will be exclusively to Oasis for the time being.

The exhibition is open from Monday 28th September to Friday 8th October (10.00am – 4.00pm, Monday – Friday).

The launch and evening reception will be held on 28th September (6.30pm), preceded by their AGM (5.30pm). All are welcome.

During the launch and evening reception, Rob Floyd will speak about making the Stations of the Cross cycle for Manchester Cathedral and Stations of the Resurrection cycle for Liverpool Cathedral. Rev. Rachel Mann, Poet in Residence at Manchester Cathedral says, “I heartily recommend that if you want to understand a little more about the applications of the word ‘Art’ in our language, spend time in communion with Rob Floyd’s paintings. You will be rewarded.”
