The Word – A Reflection on the King James Bible

Fri 2 September–Mon 19 December 2011

This exhibition departed from those events celebrating the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible which focus on language.

Before widespread literacy and the availability of the Bible either in English or in print, its stories were told through stained glass, sculpture and engravings.

With this precedent for spreading the Word through visual art in  mind, Sarum College will be filled with works in sculpture and  lettering on stone, glass and fabric by artists including Peter Eugene  Ball, Frederic  Chevarin ARBS, Zoe Cull and Alex Evans, Robyn Golden-Hann, Elizabeth Herkströter, Giles Macdonald, Mary Noble (calligrapher), Suzanne Redstone ARBS, Tracey Sheppard FGE and Roger Stephens.

Each exhibit is a unique reflection on the cultural importance of the King James Bible and its contribution to society through Christianity.
