The Methodist Modern Art Collection.

 `One of the art world’s unexpected treasures, including some of the most

powerful and arresting religious art of the 20th and 21st centuries.’ (Tim Marlow, Chief Executive and Director of the Design Museum, London, and former Artistic Director of the Royal Academy)

 The Methodist Modern Art Collection (MMAC) was put together in the early 1960s by Dr John Morel Gibbs, a Methodist layman and art collector. It contains paintings, limited edition prints and reliefs by key figures from British 20th century art, such as Edward Burra, Elisabeth Frink, Patrick Heron and Graham Sutherland.

 In more recent years the Collection has acquired works by artists from around the world, including Jyoti Sahifrom India, Sadao Watanabe from Japan and

John Muafangejo from Namibia.

This is an ambitious project which we hope will enhance social and cultural opportunities for those living in Hertfordshire and particularly in Welwyn Garden City. Alongside the exhibition there will be lectures, workshops, school visits and a community café. Free entry to all.
