so we just got back from wales, where we'd been to attend the opening night of the 'engeid' easter exhibition in colwyn bay. it's a bit of a spectacular thing to be honest, with a group of dedicated volunteers renovating the ground floor of a disused hotel and transforming it into a gallery on a shoestring budget. it's a stunning achievement, and the art that's gracing the place is equally impressive.
forty local and national artists are involved, and each of us have been given a passage from the easter story to work with. the aim of the show is to try to reclaim some of our lost spaces and stories - so it's not an overtly 'religious' show, but it is very moving and though-provoking.
