Exhibition – ‘People’ - works by artist Helen Sherriff

Pilgrim Uniting Church
3 February - 28 February 2020

The exhibition will be open to the public during 'Open Church' hours, 12-2 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Helen Sherriff's 'People' exhibition shows a selection of paintings from 1990 to the present, depicting people she has met, as well as portrayals of imagined Biblical characters. Historical figures are seen through twenty first century eyes and present-day people from a faith perspective. The heritage of Christian art has been an inspiration and a challenge. You can see references to classical art from icons to the work of Albrecht Durer, but often traditional perspectives are challenged, as a female point of view brings to light previously disregarded information.

The 20 works include acrylic and oil painting on canvas and wood, textiles, collage and mosaics.
