FURNISHED WITH LIGHT: COMPER EXHIBITION
20 May 2019
Downside Abbey is pleased to announce the launch of it’s Summer exhibition, Furnished with light: The decoration of Downside by Sir Ninian Comper, which follows after the success of Downside Abbey’s first pop-up exhibition, Voices from the Cloister earlier in the year.
The exhibition will focus on Comper’s craft in the Abbey’s stained glass altars and vestments. Downside has one of the largest collections of Comper’s work and will be exhibiting hitherto unseen archival material.
The event will be available on the 2nd and 4th Friday throughout July and August between 10am and 12pm with more details to follow shortly.
