Grace & Passion

Grace and Passion

The latest exhibition from commission4mission is to be held at St Laurence Church, Upminster during Passiontide. The exhibition's centrepiece will be the first showing of a contemporary set of Stations of the Cross by Rosalind Hore. The Stations of the Cross have been a big influence on Rosalind and her work. Each of her Stations feature three rose buds as a sign of the Trinity. On display around the church will be Rosalind’s series of clay and plaster sculptures.

Also featuring in the exhibition will be work by c4m artists: Adam Boulter, Colin Burns, Ally Clarke, Ann Creasey, Michael Creasey, Valerie Dean, Jonathan Evens, Mark Lewis, Nadiya Pavliv, Caroline Richardson, Joy Rousell Stone, Henry Shelton, and Peter Webb.

Rosalind Hore and Henry Shelton will be in conversation about their experiences of producing Stations of the Cross at a commission4mission networking evening to be held at St Laurence's Upminster on Monday 22nd March, 7.30 - 9.00pm. Henry's Stations of the Crown of Thorns have just been installed at St Paul's, Goodmayes.

commission4mission aims to encourage the commissioning and placing of contemporary Christian Art in churches, as a means of fundraising for charities and as a mission opportunity for the churches involved.
