ADVENTurous is an open submission exhibition exploring the christmas narrative, which we're staging in 3 UK venues during advent this year : at Engedi in Colwyn Bay, Leftbank in Leeds and the Union Chapel in Islington, London.

The work exhibited at Union Chapel will also be part of the one-day ‘ADVENTurous' conference, hosted by Greenbelt Festival and partners.

On this blog we'll be posting regular updates about how plans for the Leftbank Leeds show are progressing, with information about the contributing artists, and possibly some previews of the work being created for the exhibition...

'And Joseph Also Went Up... To Be Taxed With Mary, His Espoused Wife' by Steven Morant

Steven Morant is an architect. 
He has executed a commission for four small sculptures for Essex County Council
and his work has been exhibited widely and included in several collections.
He is interested in the acquisition and revival of the sort of Classical, academic,
figurative drawing and painting skills which were attained before the invention of photography.

He applied to participate in the exhibition in the hope of achieving something positive and
beneficial and concentration on the theme of "Advent" has encouraged him to consider how best
to  prepare for Christmas.  He has found  involvement in  the  exhibition an educational
experience and a personal adventure.
