Methodist Modern Art Collection Management Committee
The Methodist Council is seeking to appoint two creative and
committed volunteers as members of the Management Committee
of the Methodist Modern Art Collection.
Last year more than 30 thousand people saw touring exhibitions of
this Collection; one of Britain’s fi nest collections of modern religious
works, with more than 50 paintings, limited edition prints and reliefs
by leading artists of the last 100 years. The Collection is a
thought-provoking and inspiring outreach resource for the Methodist
Church, connecting with all ages, and interests from fine art
appreciation to spiritual exploration. The Committee members are
advocates for the Collection, encourage acquisitions, support tours
and advise on conservation.
Applications would be particularly welcome from individuals with
any of the following:
- An understanding of mission, with an interest in the relationship between faith and art;
- Experience of advocacy and Friends groups;
- Curatorial and networking skills for supporting the exhibition programme;
- Expertise in fundraising and marketing;
- Proven ability with social media.
The Committee normally meets three times a year, one of which
is a two-day residential meeting, and for which all reasonable
expenses are paid, with electronic communication and working
groups convened as required in between.
