This January, Chester Cathedral will welcome an extensive exhibition by the Cheshire Artists Network to commemorate those who participated in World War 1.

The exhibition, entitled The Great War: Remembrance and Reflection, has been part funded by the Arts Council England and is intended to give audiences a real understanding of the need for peace and reconciliation during this commemorative period. 

The exhibition brings together paintings, sculptures and multi-media elements by professional visual artists from across Chester and Cheshire. 

The exhibition includes a film entitled In Different Skies by David Heke. The piece provides an emotive and personal response to aspects of World War 1 that have had an influence on the artist’s life and his perception of conflict.

The exhibition will also include a number of special events.  Adrian Sumner - Illustrator, Arts Development Officer and Lecturer - will give a public talk entitled the Art of War on Tuesday 3 February at 7.00pm.  Tickets are available from the Chester Cathedral Box Office.

In addition, Sandra Christie – Exhibition Coordinator – will give a special free tour of the artist works on Wednesday 21 January at 2.00pm.

The exhibition is free to enter and will run from Friday 9 January – Sunday 8 February 2015.
