Art Exhibition - Life Lines

Led by Alison Ridley and Liz Bodycote

Life Lines is an exhibition to honour the unseen creativity of Carrie Baker, a retired priest, who died 3 years ago. 

In the later years of her life, Carrie devoted time to the development of her drawing and painting, and attended classes in portraiture and life drawing. Always a perfectionist, she was almost ready to consider exhibiting her work before she was tragically overtaken by mental ill health. 

This memorial exhibition will show some striking examples of her work in pastel and charcoal; life figures, facial studies and completed portraits. In viewing these works of poignant perception and depth we share in remembering Carrie and appreciate her acute sensivity expressed in line and colour. 

The exhibition takes place with the kind permission of Carrie's brother Paul and sister Rose who have generously lent Carrie's friends Liz and Ali care of the works. Sheldon has been pleased to encourage and support this showing of the works as this place of retreat became important to Carrie over many years. 

The exhibition will be open 3 - 7.30pm on Saturday 2nd November and 10am - 6pm on Sunday 3rd. There is no entry charge and no advance booking is required, but an email to would be helpful in anticipating numbers.

This event is open to everyone.
