Exhibitions & events 2019
March 15 - May 26
Snape Maltings, Suffolk IP17 1SP
This exhibition celebrates nature’s vanishing names, reclaimed in new works commissioned as an artistic response to ‘The Lost Words — A Spell Book' by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.
Carving these words into stone, wood and glass, artists create a permanent record of the natural words removed from the Oxford Junior Dictionary.
"I was very excited to be part of this exhibition, especially as I was allowed to do a 3 dimensional sculpture.
I decided to make it circular, the wheel of life and carve the two rambling ‘ lost ‘ plants around the edge, the bramble and ivy.
I wanted the sides to be contrasting, so carved one pictorial and the other more abstract. A firework explosion of springing ferns, throwing life giving seeds into the air, may their words and life continue. "

During Lent, a sculpture entitled Jesus carries the Cross by Lottie O'Leary will be exhibited in the South Transept. Each Tuesday in Lent will focus on a different interpretation of the sculpture and will be led by members of the cathedral community.
"I carved this sculpture for the ‘40 days, 40 artists' Lent exhibition at St Michael's Church, Discoed, near Presteigne in 2017.
I was allocated Jesus carrying the Cross from the Passion and we were asked to take inspiration from an Old Master. I was inspired by the Italian renaissance painter Lorenzo Lotto on the front and on the back by the Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch."
