Artistic “boundary crossing” with Eleanor McEvoy

The Gollon/McEvoy project NAKED MUSIC is ever-gathering momentum and has lead to ‘Gimme Some Wine’, a new McEvoy song and 23 new Gollon paintings seen and heard a first time in our brand new gallery space.  The 2016 album NAKED MUSIC of Eleanor McEvoy’s latest songs, some of which she has co-written with Dave Rotheray of The Beautiful South; with Lloyd Cole and Nat Johnson,  was launched in Chris Gollon‘s exhibition of the same title in London in January 2016. The album and paintings have since attracted great critical acclaim and media coverage, so much so they are the subject of a new book. Stop press: a new book by author Jackie Hayden on the McEvoy/Gollon NAKED MUSIC project is just published (late 2017), details and to purchase are here: Hot Press.

‘Incarnation, Mary & Women from the Bible’ new paintings by Chris Gollon

This major national touring exhibition that toured in 2015-2016 to British cathedrals (including Norwich, Chichester, Durham and Hereford), is now travelling to cathedrals in Ireland in 2017 (details soon!).  Chris Gollon was directly inspired by conversations with the Canon at each cathedral, and as a result added one new painting to the exhibition at each cathedral. For Norwich, it was the ‘Madonna of the Apple’ (pictured), which along with ‘Pieta’ inspired much reflection during Lent. For Chichester Cathedral Gollon added new works to the touring exhibition,  unveiling a first time his painting of ‘Judas’s Wife’, which gathered much national press interest including  The Independent and interviews with Chris Gollon on BBC Radio 3’s ‘Free Thinking’ and by Clare Balding on BBC Radio 2.  In 2016, some of the paintings from the touring exhibition will be loaned to other cathedrals and abbeys in the UK. If you would like to receive information when the works and dates are known, please subscribe here: NewsletterTo purchase the exhibition catalogue, click: Catalogue.
