    Reflections – Art Exhibition Event Image

    ‘Reflections‘ is a rather special and unique exhibition in Hurstpierpoint Holy Trinity Church - a fusion of painted antique glass, memorial war poetry, photography and artwork perfect for 2016, the Centenary Year of the Battle of the Somme. Thanks to photographic techniques, the light and beauty of Elizabeth Lamont’s glass artwork will be fused with the words of award-winning writer Vanessa Gebbie from her new collection ‘Memorandum, poetry for the fallen’.
