Moved by the Spirit
Sept. 4 –28, 2012

In the exhibition, Moved by the Spirit, artists of different faith perspectives have been invited to take a journey in expressing their art in sacred terms surrounding significant events in the life of Jesus.

This group exhibition, curated by Louise Tessier, brings together twelve artists working in clay, wood, textiles, paper, glass, painting, jewelry and iconography. Each artis has interpreted an event in the life of Jesus within his or her own artistic style and through his or her own faith experience.
