The Secret Life of Ely Cathedral

An OuseLife exhibition 6th April to 2nd May 2016 Ely Cathedral. Open daily

Featuring major works by nineteen members of the OuseLife group of artists, this exhibition showcases over 80 specially created art works celebrating the cathedral and the people who care for it. 

OuseLife has had unprecedented access to the people and buildings of the Cathedral. Through these connections artists have had the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Cathedral life, past and present. This exhibition includes a wide variety of styles and media, reflecting the diversity of the OuseLife artists. A new perspective on Cathedral life is revealed through Painting, Sculpture, Textiles, Photography, Prints, Film, Willow Work and Ceramics.  Along with site specific artworks, this collaboration has inspired a wealth of portraits of people involved in the day to day life of the Cathedral.

The art is available for sale, with commission on sales going to Ely Cathedral.

Free admission to the exhibition in the South West transept. Normal charges apply to view the site specific pieces throughout the Cathedral. Free admission with a CB6/CB7 residents pass.
