Church path Merton Park SW193HJ London

IN THE SPIRIT OF PLACE is an exhibition by 19 local artists conceived as a direct response to the special atmosphere and heritage of the Church of St Mary the Virgin. Over 9 days in September, contemporary artwork, specifically made for the event, will be shown within and around this historic building that lies at the heart of the active Parish of Merton Park. The exhibition will be part of the Merton Arts Trail and London’s Historic Buildings Open Weekend. The artists will help mark the 900th anniversary of the Church’s foundation through site-specific artwork inspired by its history and continuing presence in the local community.   A wide range of different media will include ceramics, stained glass, photography, printmaking, metalwork, paper, video and language.
