Stations of the Cross is an multi-media art exhibition which you can see for the next few weeks at St Edmund’s Church, Lidgett Park Road, Leeds LS8 1JN.
Curated by illustrator and artist Si Smith, fourteen Leeds-based artists were each given one of the 14 Stations of the Cross to interpret. I was commissioned to paint the Ninth Station – Jesus falls a third time.
Opening times, interviews with the artists and more can be found on the St Edmund’s Stations website.

Being local, I am honoured to have my paintings on show at The Three Hulats for the next two weeks as part of the Chapel Allerton Art Trail 2014, organised by Inkwell and Chapel Allerton Arts Festival. My pictures are in the darts room, so be careful. Lots of local artists are getting exposure during festival week. Download a map here.
The Offical Opening of the event happens on Tuesday 26th August, 6-9pm. Follow the art trail along the 18 locations on Harrogate Road from Inkwell to Further North Bar (about half a mile). Everyone is welcome!
