The Arts Society Helmsley: Genesis - A Visual Exploration & Exhibition

Stephen Bird will give a lecture on a series of 21 paintings he created in 2015-16 on the Book of Genesis, a project funded by the Farmington Institute of the University of Oxford. The Genesis stories are fractured, kaleidoscopic, strange, poetic and discomfiting and the paintings explore these characteristics. The Arts Centre has kindly arranged for an Exhibition of the paintings at the same time as Stephen’s lecture. The accompanying catalogue includes commentary by the renowned biblical scholar Dom Henry Wansbrough.

Stephen Bird studied art at the Chelsea School of Art and Goldsmiths College, London. He was previously Head of Art and History of Art at Ampleforth College. He is now a full-time working artist living in North Yorkshire.

7.30pm (doors 7pm) | £30 joining fee and £10 per lecture
