at ZCH Gallery in Birmingham.

Have you ever thought about going on a

QUIET DAY..?

There's one happening at All Saints Church in March, linking with a very large and inspiring art installation called The Blue and the Dim and the Gold by the artist Jake Lever (www.jakelever.org).  The work will be at All Saints through Lent to Easter.  Why not come and see?

A few details of the Quiet Day:

THE BLUE AND THE DIM AND THE GOLD
Finding calm and meaning in turbulent times

Saturday 3rd March, 10.00am to 3.30pm

The day will offer the opportunity to explore our experience of navigating the turbulent times in our lives.

A simple lunch of soup, bread and cheese will be provided and a donation of £5 (unwaged) £10 (waged) is invited to cover expenses.          

To book your place on the Quiet Day contact:

Here's what Jake Lever has to say about his work:


‘I approach my work as a spiritual exercise, a contemplative practice through which I seek a deeper understanding of myself, and my place in the world. Whilst my practice references a diverse range of historical influences including Neolithic carvings, Byzantine icons and Chinese painting, I seek to make work that is an authentic, soulful response to living now.


I trained in Fine Art at Reading University (BA) and Birmingham City University (MA) and have since exhibited widely, showing my work in public and private galleries and in sacred spaces of all kinds. I am also an experienced art educator, teaching across all phases in formal and informal settings, including galleries. Currently I work as a freelance artist, and as an Associate Teaching Fellow at the University of Warwick.’
