Congratulations to Sculpt – Art in the Churches!

Remember Sculpt – Art in the churches?
The exhibition of contemporary art works staged in seven different village churches in the Yorkshire Dales which we helped sponsor. The exhibition was a huge success, not only in drawing people from across Britain into some little visited churches, but also in introducing village children to contemporary art and the artists who created the works they were seeing.
We are delighted to learn that the team who created Sculpt have won an award run jointly by the National Churches Trust and the Marsh Christian Trust. The awards celebrate people who have had great ideas for using churches, have contributed significantly to the sustainability of church buildings, or who have helped their local community through or in their church building with exceptional dedication and kindness. Those nominated came from Scotland, Herefordshire, Somerset, Wales, London, Northern Ireland and North Yorkshire.
Watch out for the article in the winter edition of The Arts Society magazine entitled “Art amongst the pews”
