Uniting Church in the City, Wesley Perth, one of Perth’s oldest and most iconic churches, is for the seventh time preparing to present the Stations of the Cross Art Exhibition at Easter this year.
Fifteen Western Australian visual artists, representing some of our finest creative talents, have been selected and have commenced preparing their works. The artists have each been challenged to select a station that follows the final days in the life of Jesus. The individual artworks will reflect the artist’s own interpretation of the biblical story, while collectively forming an exhibition that promises to take visitors on a journey around the true meaning and spirit of Easter.
As in previous years, the artists will find contemporary analogies that will respond to the human drama played out in the traditional narrative of the Easter story.
Rev Craig Collas, Uniting Church in the City minister, hopes audiences of all spiritual persuasions can enjoy the imagination, imagery and conversation that the unique works of art will offer.
“As visitors to Wesley see the artworks, my hope is that they will be able to find their own entry point and engage with the life and journey of Jesus in a way that connects to their own personal journey. I also hope that they will be able to share their journey through conversation with others, and in that context, come closer to the love and life that this experience offers.”
Stations of the Cross 2016 will open at 6.00pm on Friday 18 March. The exhibition will continue from Saturday 19 – Monday 28 March and will be open daily from 9.00am–5.00pm.
Entry is free, as are guided tours of the exhibition.
