‘T400EX’ Exhibition Opens Saturday April 1st

March 30, 2023

Holy Trinity Church in Bailey’s Bay, founded in 1623, is holding an exhibition in April to mark its 400th anniversary. ‘T400EX’ will be hosted by the Bermuda Society of Arts at Hamilton’s City Hall.

Canon John Stow says, “This is a fascinating celebration of the history of a Parish Church and of life in Bermuda over four centuries, newly probed and illustrated, with beautiful works of art and poetry inspired by the church.”

The spokesperson said, “The Exhibition, which has been three years in the making, is curated by artist Vaughan Evans, with input from a host of contributors and guidance from Bermudian Dr Kristy Warren, Senior Lecturer in Black History at Lincoln University.

“Included on display are artworks, some privately owned and rarely seen until now, and others generously loaned by the Bermuda National Trust and by Masterworks. Paintings of Holy Trinity Church by Bermuda’s Plein Air Group will be on sale.

“Timelines covering over four centuries give vivid, candid details of Bermuda’s social context gleaned both from historical sources, and from the living memory of those who have shaped Bermuda’s social progress over the last 50 years.

“T400EX opens this Saturday 1st April at the Edinburgh Gallery, City Hall, and will run until Tuesday 25th April, on Mondays to Fridays from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. There is free admission.”
