Spark and Echo Arts 5th Anniversary: The Word Illuminated
January 14-February 5, 2016
To "illuminate" means to "light up" or "help to clarify or explain". For five years, Spark and Echo Arts has been commissioning artists to create new work and share personal perspectives on Bible passages, bringing fresh illumination to ancient text. This project allows the artist to actively engage in meditation, interpretation and application of living, breathing words. This exhibit featured highlights from the past five years: a celebration of individual and collective responses from the Bible.
As the Church celebrates Epiphany and moves from Christmas to Easter, we invite you to walk alongside these artists and dialogue with their visual responses even as you perhaps grapple with your own thoughts of meaning, faith, and life, and examine what it means for the Word to be illuminated and revealed.
Exhibiting artists: Melissa Beck, Lucas Bianchi, Jessie Brugger, David Czupryna, Nicora Gangi, Evelyn Lewis, Janna Luttrell, Aarti Sequeira and Emmitt Klein-Stropnicky.
