Art Show: USING TALENTS TO ENABLE TALENTS – Judith Mahatane and Frank Sargeant ** 28 Sep – 3 Oct 2015 ** Gallery 40, Brighton

Frank Sargeant is a retired bishop, having been Bishop of Stockport and Bishop at Lambeth. He has painted in his spare time since his school days. He holds a watercolour class in his local parish church of St Philip with St Stephen, Salford weekly and many of the paintings in this exhibition are those which he has set his class to do, concentrating on shape, tone and contrast. Others are examples of his sketches when travelling abroad as an assistant bishop in the Diocese of Europe. Most of the watercolours are in a standard size mount so that they can be framed to desired choice. Included are small canvases with fruit and vegetables painted in bold acrylics, which Frank calls his ’kitchen art.’ He also paints ceramics and the exhibition contains examples of his work mainly on bowls decorated with ducks and hens. Hand-painted greeting cards are also available. At the moment he is helping to raise money to finance a Christian Aid project to alleviate poverty in Burkino Faso in Africa by helping the native population to be self- sufficient. Hence the title of the exhibition is ‘USING TALENTS TO ENABLE TALENTS.’
