What's On

‘JOURNEY INTO LIGHT’

An exhibition of prisoner artwork will be on display in St. Helen's Parish Church, Tarporley from 29th August until 11th September. entitled “Journey into Light”, the aim of the exhibition is to demonstrate to visitors that behind every prisoner's conviction and sentence is a personal story of love, hope and loss.

The exhibition is inspired by the work of David Ashbrook, who discovered an extraordinary gift for painting while serving a life sentence, is made up of over 40 individual pieces of work and is a partnership between St. Helen's Parish of Tarporley, the Diocese of Chester and chaplains from HMP Styal and HMP Thorn Cross who have worked with the prisoners there to produce these pieces of art. The exhibits differ in style and include self-portraits, abstract landscapes and large acrylic paintings.

 

All are welcome to visit this free exhibition in St Helen’s church which will be open from 9am to 5pm every day during this period.

 

 On  Saturday 31st August from 10.30am to 3pm refreshments will be available in church.
