Christian work by Jeremy Thomas coming to Penarth Church

AN EXHIBITION of paintings aimed at telling Gospel stories is coming to Penarth.

Penarth Methodist Church is delighted to host an exhibition of paintings by Jeremy Thomas – who was shortlisted for ‘Welsh Artist of the Year’ in 2012 – in September.

Mr Thomas was inspired to produce a series of 30 paintings following an enthusiastic service at St Mary’s Priory in Abergavenny, where the congregation was challenged to use their talents to spread the Christian message.

His detailed work – called “The Human One” – shows events in the life of Christ and contains hidden details and threads that only become clear when you dive into the images.

This exhibition has previously been shown at St David’s Cathedral in Pembrokeshire and St Woolos Cathedral in Newport.

Mr Thomas’ exhibition will be on display at Penarth Methodist Church on Stanwell Road from Tuesday September 6 and will end on Sunday September 25.

The paintings will be in the main church, allowing visitors to view the artwork and take a peek at the charming building.

The opening hours are from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.; on Saturday, there will only be morning sessions (10am-12pm).
