Rainbows are not just a beautiful natural phenomenon, they represent peace and hope and the metaphorical promise of sunshine after the rain. In 2020 they were used as a powerful emblem of solidarity with our NHS and key workers, while throughout history they have been given a spiritual meaning in every major religion. Rainbows were also adopted by the peace movement in the 1960’s and have become an enduring international symbol of the LGBT+ community.
For our new Spring Open Art Exhibition, we have encouraged artists to work in all mediums to create a timely celebration of rainbows. Expect a kaleidoscope celebration of colour, where the sky is the limit and rainbows are a bridge to more positive and peaceful future.
The exhibition is included in your Abbey entry and is free to 1196 Club members. Advanced booking essential.
