Glowing Older exhibition on show at St Peter’s Church
Our Glowing Older exhibition with St Ann’s fine art photographer Grace Eden has proved so popular it’s going on show at St Peter’s Church in the heart of the city so it can be enjoyed by even more people!
The exhibition features portraits of Nottingham’s older residents photographed in the style of old paintings. It will open to the public at St Peter’s Church (next to M&S) from Tuesday 10 September from 10am-4pm on weekdays and Saturdays – until Friday 27 September.
Visitors will also be able to join Grace for free guided ‘Wednesday Walkthroughs’ the exhibition on 11, 18 and 25 September from 2pm to 3pm – to find out more about how Grace created the portraits and the people behind them.
Glowing Older is Grace’s first solo show and the exhibition was commissioned by ‘Place’ – The Renewal Trust’s community-led arts and culture programme.
Dorothy Mountford, Assistant Church Warden at St Peter’s Church explained:
“On first seeing ‘Glowing Older’ at the Broadway Gallery, my first instinct was to text all my friends and encourage them to come and see these photographs as quickly as possible! My second thought was to invite Grace and The Renewal Trust to bring the portraits to St Peter’s. Hundreds of people pass by the church, sitting at the heart of the city, every day. We’re delighted that Grace has given us the opportunity to share the joy and delight generated by her wonderfully creative celebration of life with the people of Nottingham.”
Angie, whose portrait features in the exhibition, told us: “Being involved in the project made me feel like I can do anything, it’s really boosted my confidence.”
We’ve teamed up with the National Ice Centre, Nottingham City Council and Experian to make sure families don’t miss out on important free family learning sessions
Windrush Day 2020 seems a fitting moment to share this powerful instalment from St Ann’s Stories – a very special newspaper created by and for the people of St Ann’s.
