If I had to find work in which was summarised English honesty, immediacy, whimsical and poetical imagination, care for craftmanship, and a passion for the eccentric, the quirkish and the individual, I would elect the sculpture of Peter Eugene Ball. Max Wykes-Joyce

Picture: Peter Eugene Ball

Monday 1st August to Thursday 29th September

*In Chichester Cathedral's North Transept - Open Daily, from 9.30am - 7.00pm, with Free Entry

An exhibition of over forty fascinating sculptures on the theme of 'Sacred and Profane' is taking place at Chichester Cathedral.  Peter Eugene Ball has over sixty major works in cathedrals and churches up and down the country and this exhibition of striking new work - created especially for this exhibition - is an exciting collection of both his religious and secular sculptures.

By turns beautiful, intelligent and witty, the sculptures range from the devotional to the wry, and include works such as the life-size Madonna and Child, to a depiction of Eve Running, to a fantastic Freewheeling  and a bishop bathing in Ablution.

Ball's sculptures are mainly figurative and often made from found objects, predominantly wood.  The sculptures are often partly covered in copper or pewter and embellished with silver and gold leaf.  The sculptures are in varying sizes and all are available to purchase.

* Please note that the exhibition will close briefly during Evensong from 5.00pm to 6.15pm on weekdays and Saturdays, and also from 3.00pm to 4.15pm on Sundays only. 

Please be aware that the Cathedral is open from 7.15am - 7.00pm daily with Free Entry.
