Exhibition List​

“Really interesting, thought provoking works of art” – BBC1 South Today News

” I enjoyed a lot visiting the gallery yesterday. The exhibition was accessible, moving and definitely full of spirituality.”  M Meslee

“A truly amazing accomplishment & I’m sure will have a lasting legacy.” S Whittick

“Such a fantastic exhibition.” Sputnik Magazine

“The winning piece ‘spoke’ to us, particularly, as many years ago Peter collected small pots, (until I complained about having to look after them!) I found ‘Genes’ especially moving and the aptly named black bin-bag piece ‘Left Out’ both shocking and sad.  All in all a powerful and moving exhibition.”  J Matthews

“It was a privilege to be part of this wonderful exhibition and be able to witness people’s positive responses to the art. How wonderful to see the creativity of others!”  
R Bradbury

“Thought-provoking indeed.” I Vignolo

“Thank you so much for the huge gift you have given to God for London with this exhibition –  it is really excellent.  What a super idea to have anonymised selection – this gives everyone the same chance with their works… the Catalogue is amazing  — that is a physical legacy and I pray that this will be used to mark a new moment in spiritual art making for the 21st century.”  J Lamb

“Thoroughly recommended!  A thought provoking, FREE art exhibition on London’s South bank.” K Hitchens

“Congratulations for such a successful project.”  K Green

“Thank you for all your hard work and for showcasing spiritual arts in the mainstream. The exhibition looked great and delighted to hear it received so many visitors”

 R Ho

“I was reading the book on the way back. It is so well put together both in terms of design and the text by Ann Clifford which, as well as being thought-provoking, weaves it all together. Super quality reproduction.”  P Cresswell

“Excellent exhibition” L Sutton, Passion Art Trail

“Thank you for your vision in setting up the Chaiya Art Awards, it must have been a massive task from the start but has come together as a wonderfully thought provoking exhibition; what is art if not communicating ideas!”  E Rutt

Thanks again for all the work you’re putting into this great opportunity for artists!  M Rushton
