The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out, like shining from shook foil...
(Gerard Manley Hopkins)

As artists we often express those aspects and experiences of faith which come from the heart and cannot be understood or described by words alone. For this open-studio exhibition, we invited ECVA artists to submit a work which communicates some moment, or moments, in which they have experienced their heartís recognition of the presence of Spirit or the grandeur of God.


The response to this Call was generous and wildly creative. From altars to icons, from grief to joy, it's all here.
