Do you believe in Angels? The Angel Project, a group show of eight UK artists organized by artist Michael Cook, is now on view at St. Mary's Church in Nottingham, UK. The works reflect each artist's personal response to some aspect of the visual conventions or narratives associated with angels. This Angel project builds on the success of two previous group exhibitions - ‘A Derbyshire Passion – Stations of the Cross’ held at Derby Cathedral in 2015, and The Adam & Eve Project which toured the Midlands in 2017/18. The participating artists are Michael Cook, Elizabeth Forrest, Rebecca Mercer, Duncan Pass, Sue Prince, John Rattigan, Sarah Sharpe, and Anna Thomas. Location: St Marys Church, 40 High Pavement, Nottingham, NG1 1HN (Through June 10, 2018).
