June 2019 Festival

A lot of hard work went into creating the displays for this festival – not to mention the activites which took place during the three days, and the large amount of tea and coffee prepared, and the mountain of cake that was baked.

The Festival Team taking a well-earned rest.

What a fantastic exhibition! Thank you and well done to all the team, I’ve really enjoyed my visit this afternoon.

Thank you so much for a truly inspiring exhibition the artworks and design were exceptional, and gave a peaceful spiritual message, which with the beautiful music and song left us feeling very close to God. Looking forward to the next one.

A very interesting and stimulating exhibition – much food for thought. Many thanks.

A beautiful and thoughtful exhibition. One smiles to consider the talents of all who have contributed and gained from their association with Kingdom Arts. So much that I liked v. much . . . Stations of the Cross, Mary Fleeson’s work, the cross and candlesticks. What drew me particularly were the sand/bowl installation – quiet, meditative, therapeutic potential, and the Prayer Obelisk- the opportunity to quietly reflect on needs of another and request help!
Yes, very much enjoyed my visit.
Avril

Thank you, for me, today, the metal cross has made a lasting impression.
Very inspiring – it’s been wonderful to see such talent.

Wow! What a magnificent display of some amazing talent. Hard to pick a favourite amongst so much excellent art but I did like the cross and candlesticks. Also, the fishes painting. But that’s just two of many many to choose from. Nice cakes too!
