To touch hearts and transform lives through Christ.

Stations of the Cross

Wesley Uniting Church in the City, one of Perth’s oldest and most iconic churches, is pleased to introduce you to the forthcoming 2017 Stations of the Cross Art Exhibition.

Proudly supported by the City of Perth, the Exhibition has become an annual tradition for Wesley Uniting Church and also a significant event within the Art Community.

Running for the 8th year, the Exhibition is curated by Claire Bushby and will feature newly commissioned artworks by fifteen Western Australian contemporary artists.  

The artists, representing some of our finest creative talent, have been invited to participate in this year’s event which features newly created artworks, specially commissioned for the show.

The fifteen artworks correspond to the traditional story of Easter and the ritual of the 'Stations of the Cross'. While pertaining to a religious narrative, participating artists each interpret a single 'station' through their personal and unique understanding of Easter and the human experiences and themes that underlie it. 

This year, the commissioned artists - who hail from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds - were asked to focus on the embodiment of humanity within their works and to engage in interfaith dialogue by exploring universal human experiences such as loss, grief, oppression and mortality. Through a variety of art forms - including painting, sculpture, and textiles - the exhibition bridges between sacred stories and the issues and events that are present in our contemporary world.

- Nathan Beard
- Celene Bridge

- Moira de la Hunty
