Incarnation, Mary and Women from the Bible, a show by artist Chris Gollon, opened at Norwich Cathedral's Hostry yesterday and runs until April 13. The exhibition features an array of Mr Gollon's thought-provoking depictions of women from both the Old and New Testaments, as well as paintings of some remarkable women who came after.

It began as an exhibition of Mr Gollon's work at Guildford Cathedral in his home county of Surrey, before going on a national tour which, as well as stopping at Norwich, will also visit Chichester and Durham.

New images have been created for each venue.

For Norwich, Mr Gollon has included images of Julian of Norwich and Madonna of the Apple. The works were included following conversations between Mr Gollon and the Rev Dr Peter Doll, Canon Librarian at Norwich Cathedral.

Mr Gollon said: 'I am delighted to have been invited to exhibit my imagery of women from the Bible in the Hostry, the cathedral's beautifully appointed bespoke exhibition space.'

Incarnation, Mary and Women from The Bible is at the Hostry until Monday, April 13. It is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4.30pm and Sunday from midday until 3pm. For more, visit www.cathedral.org.uk and www.chrisgollon.com
