Capture the Cathedral Competition winners announced
Earlier this year, Lichfield Cathedral, working with Peter Walker, the Cathedral’s Artist in Residence, invited artists to participate in an exciting new competition to capture Lichfield Cathedral in a new way. For one afternoon on Saturday 20th August, artists were invited to set up their easels and tripods to paint or photograph the Cathedral. In October a panel selected the best images from the afternoon and the winning artist was Lichfield professional artist Carl Knibb. Carl’s winning painting entitled ‘Pilgrims’ will be featured in an exhibition at the Cathedral this summer. This special exhibition – Lichfield Cathedral, A View Through Time will showcase number of works by Masters, including Lichfield Cathedral from the South West painted in 1832 by J W Turner. This particular work was recently bequeathed to the Cathedral and will be on show at this exhibition for the first time in many years.
Carls painting will also be framed by one of the leading framers in the UK, Kingswood Frames, in preparation for the exhibition.
The winning photograph was by Dawn Jutton (from the photography category) and Dawn’s photograph will be printed as a 20×30 inch canvas print provided by Frosts Photo Centre, again in preparation for the exhibition.
