About the Art Show

St. Andrew's has been hosting an annual art exhibition for nearly twenty years. The show is organised by the church's Action Abroad team, to raise funds for the overseas good causes supported by the church. Many thousands of pounds have been donated, largely from the commission on painting sales, to these charities which have mainly been working in Africa.

The exhibition also gives artists, most of them local, the opportunity to showcase and sell their work. Every year it's a pleasure to welcome lots of visitors into the church to enjoy this lovely building and the wide range of artwork. There's no charge to drop in and browse the paintings for as long as you like, and tea and cake are always available.

The 2005 Art Exhibition was the brainchild of Ken Dench and David Perril along with Adrian and Nora Rutherford who were for many years the driving force behind it. Adrian designed and built the stands which transform the church building into a gallery. Each year a wonderful team of volunteers help with the varied tasks of setting up and running the show.

Usually around a quarter of paintings exhibited are sold. Greetings cards featuring the artists' work are also available, so you can take home an example of the art for minimal cost. Last year the art show raised £1300 for the charity we support in Zimbabwe, and we hope to do as well in 2024!

This year Girton Art Show is open on Friday 10 May, 11am - 7pm, and Saturday 11 May, 10 am - 5pm. Do come and see the art in the beautiful surroundings of our village church of St. Andrew's.
