BERT, HIS DOG, OUR GOD - AN ARTIST'S INTERPRETATION OF THE NEW TESTAMENT

The Lost Sheep

19 Mar 2020 - 16 Apr 2020

Paintings by Gary Bunt regularly feature a man (Bert) and his dog (the commentator). This exhibition sees Bert and his dog telling the story of the life of Christ - from The Nativity to The Ascension. The 51 paintings each has a relevant poem and together they create a personal and imaginative view of The New Testament.

An app of the exhibition together with a video by the artist will be available to download. A hardback book will accompany the exhibition.

Gary Bunt is recognised as one of the U.K.'s most popular contemporary figurative artists. His paintings are held in collections in the U.K, Europe, USA, Hong Kong and Australia. He is represented by Portland Gallery, London. This exhibition is supported by the Farmington Institute.

The Lost Sheep (Luke 15 3:7) We went out on the tractor It's been a very busy day Down the lane and back again It's been a long long way Now we are heading back to the farm We should be there by six o'clock And with us is the sheep we found Coming home to our good Lords flock.
