Anne Grebby | Artist Residency


Internationally exhibited artist Anne Grebby will be undertaking a three month residency at Chichester Cathedral.

During her residency, which will take place from 23rd January - 1st April, Grebby will be creating a painted triptych, depicting the Baptism of Christ. Visitors to the Cathedral will be invited to see Anne at work, and during occasions, speak to her directly about her creative practice.

Grebby has exhibited work in a number of sacred spaces, including at All Saints Church, Hove, Lincoln Cathedral, the Convent Refettrio di San Michelle, Italy, and at a Jewish Synagogue in Essengen, Germany. She has completed residencies in England, Germany, Italy and America.

The artist said:

"This opportunity to be Artist in Residence at Chichester Cathedral is an exciting way of communicating through painting- of entering the biblical narrative and exploring it's meanings alongside the public."

Viewing her work as "spiritual thought-generator", she goes on to explain:

"Painting is a way of harnessing and expressing things which are seemingly insignificant- but full of meaningful implications. It can bring to the surface realities which we may sense are there but often ignore- or miss. In other words, painting is a way of seeing and communicating both the seen and the unseen."

This residency will be situated in the Chapel of St John the Baptist in the east of the Cathedral. Previously this chapel has been furnished with a Reredos by Irish-born Artist Patrick Procktor (1984).

Anne's residency runs alongside a programme of events, which includes a very special drop-in family workshop on art and the senses on Friday 17th February between 11.00am and 2.00pm. Attendees will be invited to use all their senses to create a colourful masterpiece, inspired by the modern art in the Cathedral. The activity is completely free, and there's no need to book.
