Exhibition: MARY, MARY, 8th – 16th September, Church of St Martin-on-the-Hill, Scarborough, YO11 2BT
Collaborative project: Cyanotype installations and video
St Martin-on-the-Hill is a treasure trove of Pre-Raphaelite stained glass and William Morris interior décor. But just who was the enigmatic Mary who conjured this exquisitely-decorated example of the Gothic revival into being? The church was built chiefly at her expense in 1863, and her generosity breathed life into what it is today, a Pre-Raphaelite’ Cathedral by the Sea’. But why was she reprimanded for stealing flowers from nearby South Cliff Gardens one morning in 1870?
The exhibition looks at themes of female power, otherness, the desire for freedom and the language of flowers.
Church and cafe open every day from 11 am – 4 pm (except Saturday 9th September – open 2 pm – 4 pm)
