About The Protecting Veil

New Art work by established Edinburgh artist Benet Haughton will be showing at St Mary’s Cathedral in the west end of the city. This awesome venue compliments Haughton’s work in its spiritual nature. The work explores the materiality of paint and has a powerful and contemporary aesthetic.

The show is entitled 'The Protecting Veil' and runs from the 9th-27th April.

Reflecting the sense of emerging from a pandemic mentality these pieces celebrate the resurrection. His work is joyful while inviting us to remain aware of the veil of suffering and be compassionate in the face of the many difficult issues that beset us.

To accompany the paintings; on Wednesday 20th April12pm or Thursday 21st April 2pm, there will be a meditational event with two pianos played by James Robertson and Hazel Hewitt of The Scottish Music Centre.

Duration of these performances is 40 minutes. Free Entry. Collection for Ukraine refugees.
