“Art and Soul at All Souls” was launched with music, food and wine on Saturday 13th August.  Around 90 people enjoyed the afternoon as they viewed the artwork and chatted with friends and artists. 

Our glass artists Julie Frahm and Eamonn Vereker are pictured with their displays beneath Morris & Co’s famous Peace window in the Lady Chapel. 

Musicians Duncan Hemstock (saxaphone) and Jason Hammond (piano) entertained the crowd with jazz classics while visitors sipped and nibbled a delicious spread provided by Carolyn of “Little Reds Catering”.

Artwork by Nicola Fereday and Fiona Hemsworth is displayed at the entrance to the church.

Mixed-media art by Helen Davis, Hannay Denny-Dimitriou’s pointallism and Claire Aberle’s detailed pen drawings drew a crowd of admirers. 

The afternoon provided a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends and welcome first-time visitors to All Souls’ Church. 

The variety of art on display can be seen below before the opening event.  In addition to the art work, Elizabeth worked her magic with flowers to create  beautiful floral art.
