Then at Wakefield Cathedral from Sat 21st Jan - Sat 18th Feb 2012.

There will be a catalogue available with all 8 paintings reproduced, an introductory text by Revd Iain McKillop all about the history of Emblems in art and culture; and the text of a "conversation" between myself and Adrian Marc Lister, who runs the Armley Gallery. The exhibition then travels to Wakefield Cathedral in the new year.

This exhibition was made possible with the financial assistance of ACE (Art and Christianity Enquiry), Wakefield Diocese, and CJW printers, Elland.

Tea, Coffee, and perhaps something stronger will be served during the opening. (catalogue available at the opening only, or by contacting me).
