Imagining the Divine:  Art and the Rise of World Religions

The Galleries of the Ashmolean Museum were the venue for a Private Viewing of the new exhibition on Wednesday 18 October from 6.30pm – 8.30pm.  Combining tastefully displayed sculptures, painted images, calligraphy, manuscripts, precious metals and jewellery over a period of time spanning the first millennium this exhibition explores how each religion was influenced to a greater or lesser extent by the art of other religions. 

The religions represented in the exhibition numbered the big five; namely Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. 

It is open to the public from 19 October 2017 to 18 February 2018.  Further information is available here.

HMG Is proud to continue its association with the Ashmolean and other arts connections in and around Oxfordshire.
