Cathedral launches art gallery

A PERMANENT space for artists to bring to life iconic images and famous vistas of the county has opened at Suffolk’s Cathedral.

The Edmund Gallery, named after King Edmund who is buried in the Cathedral’s grounds in Bury St Edmunds, will showcase exhibitors work in the historic setting.

The gallery, which officially opened at the weekend<13.02>, looks out onto Angel Hill, alongside the Cathedral shop and is in the rooms previously used by the Cathedral’s education department.

David Humphreys, arts co-ordinator for the Cathedral, said: “We are very excited about the opening of the new gallery, which will be a development of the series of art exhibitions we have had for a number of years at the Cathedral.

“We hope that the Edmund Gallery will attract a wide variety of artists working in different media.”
