Salvation: Six Sculptures by Saloomeh Asgary
Sat, 6 August 2016 - Tue, 30 August 2016
St Albans Cathedral is delighted to host Salvation: Six Sculptures by Saloomeh Asgary. The large wooden sculptures, which are hand carved, were inspired during hours of prayer and worship.
Saloomeh Asgary was born in Iran in 1981 and in 2003 gained a degree in Painting at the University of Elm o San’at in Tehran. After becoming a Christian, Saloomeh came to the belief that her skills and talents were a gift from God, to be used for Him. She then studied for three years with a distinguished master of Sculpture in Tehran, before opening her own independent studio. Following a vision which she received from God during a time of Christian worship, Saloomeh began work on a series of six sculptures connected with the theme of Salvation. However, because conversion to the Christian faith is illegal in Iran, she was not able to display the sculptures or explain their meaning.
The Exhibition is on display from Saturday 6th August until Tuesday 30th August. Free entry Monday to Friday 08:30-16:30, Saturday 08:30-15:30 & Sunday 13:00-17:00.
