All Saints Artists

All Saints Artists are a new group of nine artists who will be showing for the first time at All Saints Church. They are really excited to be able to display their artworks in All Saints Church and are grateful for the welcome they received from members of the church.

They said:
"It is such a lovely spacious venue and we value the opportunity to present our works here. When we were first shown the inside of the church, we instantly thought how good it would be to have our two painters hang their pictures on either side of the nave, towards the front of the church. We are then going to arrange tables along the sides for our assorted potters and jewellers."

The artists featured are Helle Christensen, Trisha Drury, Victoria Hallam, Sarah Mook, Vivien Sieber, Lisa Marie Smith, Stuart Roper, Jane Wafer, and Deirdre Gyenes. Full details of the range of items they make can be found on the Art Weeks website and booklet. All Saints Artists are part of the Headington trail – local maps will appear soon.

The exhibition will be open from Saturday 20th – Monday 29th (not Thursday 25th) from 12noon-6pm and on Sunday from 12noon - 5.30pm. Please do come and browse the stalls, there is absolutely no obligation to buy. The artists will be around should you have questions or want to chat about their work.

All Saints' Social Committee will be selling tea and cakes while the exhibition is open between 2 & 4:30pm on Saturday 27th May.
