Chester Cathedral Art Exhibition

This January, Chester Cathedral will welcome up and coming sculptor Jack Sawbridge and his brand new art exhibition.

The exhibition, entitled Tension, Resonance and Light, features seven dramatic sculptures that are made from polished wood, blown glass and musical strings. The sculptures will take up residence in the cathedral cloisters until the end of the month and entry to the exhibition will be free of charge.

Jack, who originally trained as an architect, is able to construct his geometric devices by shaping wood, blown glass and musical strings into dynamic, interactive systems. He has developed a number of unique techniques that enable him to encase illuminated, blown glass vessels in polished, wooden structures.

Heritage and Exhibition Manager, Nick Fry, said:

“We are thrilled to welcome Jack’s exhibition. The sculptures he is bringing to the cathedral are fascinating and beautiful. This kind of solo show is a first for us – and we are sure visitors will love it. It will be very special to see these impressive structures in the context of the cathedral’s medieval cloisters”.

The exhibition will open on 9 January and will run until the end of the month.
