Gloucester Cathedral / Open West

If you happen to be around Gloucester city any time of your life do not miss a chance to go and see Gloucester cathedral. I was totally blown away by its Norman and Gothic architecture. It has one of the biggest stained glass windows in the world which is absolutely gorgeous. In matter of fact all the details are fabulous.

We were lucky enough to catch the Open West Exhibition in the cathedral which is an annual open competition and exhibition inviting work from national and international artists practicing contemporary and conceptual art in the fields of painting, installation, film and sound, textile, photography, ceramics, print, drawing, performance and sculpture.
