Hidden St Martin's

Hidden St Martin’s is an exhibition for the Patronal Festival of St Martin-in-the-Fields by artists and craftspeople from the congregation will reflect on the theme of ‘Hidden St Martin’s’ from a variety of different perspectives using ceramics, drawings, film, paintings, photographs, text and textiles. The things that are hidden are often the most significant. We are inspired by the story of St Martin, who noticed the destitute man at the gate of the city of Amiens, and by the church building, which after many centuries of worship and prayer becomes a ‘thin place,’ where what is hidden becomes seen. 

The exhibition features work by: Rosalind Beeton, Alice Bree, Jonathan Evens, Vicky Howard, Jonathan Kearney, Lightspirit, Zi Ling, Ali Lyon, Brian Mears, Jon Sandford and Rosida Simrick.

At 5.00pm on Sunday 13 November, we celebrate our Patronal Festival The Art of St Martin's and mark the 1700th anniversary of the birth of St Martin of Tours, 800 years of there being a church of St Martin’s on our site, and the climax of our 15-year arts programme.
