Charles MacCarthy - The Last Supper Table

The TWELVE

A FURTHER REFLECTION ON THE LAST SUPPER

17th FEBRUARY – 6th APRIL 2015

Open daily 10:00am till 5:30pm

 

The annual Lent exhibition at St Michael's Discoed this year returns to the theme of The Last Supper. Two years ago the exhibition explored themes found in the gospel accounts as well as parallel events, this year's exhibition entitled "The Twelve" focuses entirely on the meal itself and those who were present. Around the walls of the church will be a series of twelve portraits each one representing one of the disciples. Central to the exhibition will be Charles MacCarthy's installation of The Last Supper table and its objects rendered in white plaster.

The participating artists at St Michael's are: Sara Bamford, Julienne Braham, Nick Bush, Susie Cawley, Simon Dorrell, Tony Hall, Lois Hopwood, Charles MacCarthy, Dan MacCarthy, Tania Mosse, Silvia Pastore, Alex Ramsay and Bronte Woodruff.

All proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to St Michael’s Hospice, Hereford. St Michael’s Hospice is the main provider of specialist palliative care in Herefordshire and each year supports over 1300 patients and their loved ones. St Michael's Hospice look after people throughout their journey - from the point of diagnosis to the end of life.
