Tess Ainley exhibits at Cley 17 Exhibition, Cley next the Sea

July 2017

Tess has been selected as one of the artists to exhibit at 'Cley 17' this year, inside the beautiful St. Margaret’s Church, in Cley next the Sea. This year’s theme is ‘Connectivity’ and in response, Tess has produced 100 small, unframed, mixed media works on paper, entitled '100 Prayers’.

Tess says 'Through prayer we connect with each other, whether through intercession for people we do not know or praying directly with a person. This connectedness dissolves barriers and binds us together. In the segregated and divided world in which we live, prayer provides an acceptable means of interaction and provides opportunity for acceptance, relationship building and peace'.

'100 Prayers' is about finding time out of our busy lives to take a moment to pause and reflect ... to connect, mend, heal and repair.

Cley 17 starts on 6th July and continues until 6th August. St Margaret’s Church is open every day from 10am-5.30pm. The Private View is on Wednesday 5th July from 6-8pm. The exhibition is spread over several venues in Cley and is one not to miss.
