Our Last Supper by @idcampbellart – a meditation video inspired by @sandfordawards and @small_voice1

Standard

This year I once again was involved in the shortlisting for the Sandford Awards – awards for excellence in religious programming. The category that I was given was ‘Interview of the Year’ – all of the interviews were absolutely fascinating and every one could have been a winner. You can see the final shortlists here.

One interview that stayed with me was one based on a painting by the artist ID Campbell called Our Last Supper.

Our Last Supper by Iain Campbell

You can listen to the interview here: http://www.smallvoice.org.uk/a-thousand-words-iain-campbell/

Using this, I have created a meditative film that can be used in worship. Enjoy!

Iain Campbell is a portrait painter, and Artist in Residence at St George’s Tron Church of Scotland in Glasgow city centre.  ‘Our Last Supper’ is on display in the Olive Tree Café in St George’s Tron Church right in the heart of Glasgow city centre.

Jesus smiling – an exhibition of 18 different artists from around the world

Standard

I found this link via Unvirtuous Abbey on Twitter:

There are some lovely paintings in this collection of 18 different artists’ work depicting a joyful Jesus.

A good resource for schools work and church things – sometimes it’s hard to find images of Jesus as different nationalities and also of him smiling!

Visit this link to download a pdf of the whole collection with artists’ notes:
