Painting Luke's Gospel


About the project

The Painting Luke’s Gospel project, based in St George’s Tron church in Glasgow, seeks to produce 24 paintings, each one linking a chapter of Luke’s Gospel with life in the city. Every canvas is painted in situ at St George’s Tron by resident artist I.D. Campbell, with completed paintings displayed throughout the church and the Wild Olive Tree Cafe, giving an outstanding gallery experience.

The Paintings

Each completed canvas is shown here.

New paintings will be added throughout the course of the project. Click on a painting to access a high-resolution image, the videos and download material.
