Derby Cathedral is saddened to hear of the passing of the Rt Revd Michael Perham, former Bishop of Gloucester and the last Provost and first Dean of Derby.

Bishop Michael served the Cathedral for almost six years - first as Provost, and then as Dean - and oversaw the fundraising efforts to acquire and finally open the Cathedral Centre opposite the Cathedral in 2004, which houses an award-winning Bookshop and Café alongside the Cathedral offices.

We are grateful for his ministry and his dedication; he will be in our prayers

In My Mind’s Eye is Sarah Sharpe’s title for her exhibition throughout December and January in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge at Derby Cathedral Centre.

After training and practicing as a nurse and a counsellor Sarah changed direction in her late thirties to pursue a lifelong interest in art, winning awards in a number of significant exhibitions. ‘I work in mediums such as intaglio etching, lithography, stitch and paint, striving to make an aspect of the human condition more tangible through image and choice of medium. I am  presently working on a project where I am using the woods as my studio for one full day a week. This practice is highly influential as my senses become more attuned to nature, the seasons and my passion for symbolic images and the internal imaginative process’.

The exhibition will open on 1st December and continue until 31st January 2017, Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm, closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.

The Music of the Landscape is Maggie Robinson’s title for her exhibition throughout November in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge at Derby Cathedral Centre. Brought up in the North Yorkshire Moors she trained as a teacher at London University. After leaving teaching she set up her own retail fashion business whilst pursuing her interest in art. She now lives in Sheffield and is an active member of Peak District Artisans. She says of her work,  

 ‘I try to create paintings that capture the sense of  place by looking for the rhythmic, melodious and harmonious qualities that abound in our beautiful English countryside. Using acrylics, charcoal, and collage, I concentrate particularly on my use of colour  to create a personal interpretation that reflects my love of landscape, rich in musical elements’.

The exhibition will open on Tuesday 1st November and continue until Wednesday 30th November, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, closed Sundays.
