Tonight Jon and I are headed to a reception for the current art exhibit at John Knox Presbyterian Church, Highly Favored: Contemporary Images of the Virgin Mary. It promises to be a great evening of fantastic visual art, good food, and a gallery talk from Greg Wolfe. Mr. Wolfe is a renowned speaker on the intersection of art and faith, as well as the editor of Image Journal and founder of the MFA Creative Writing program at SPU.
If you are a) in the Seattle area, b) free tonight, and c) the least bit interested in visual art and/or free food, I highly recommend that you join us. 7 PM at JKPC. Here are a few images, in case you need convincing:
Nocturne, Bruce Herman
Unwed, Pregnant, Candidate for Stoning, Rosemary Luckett
The Passion of Mary, Katherine Bayly
