Touch, Anoint, Heal: God with Us
January 19 - February 15
from CIVA: Christians in the Visual Arts
Seeking to bring the touch of God down from the lofty ceiling of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel and into our day-to-day lives.
This collection of artwork brings together the work of thirty artists from all across the United States and Europe; some from as far away as Hawaii and Germany. These pieces encompass a wide variety of media, including photography, painting, sculpture, pottery, fibers, digital and mixed media. JBU Gallery Director, Charles Peer, says, “This is a powerful, moving, and sometimes challenging collection of sacred artwork. It is a wonderful opportunity to see how so many highly acclaimed artists take on this theme. I believe that if the viewer will spend some time with, and be vulnerable to the artwork, they will be blessed by its powerful message.”
The ground floor of the Windgate Visual Arts West building houses a generous gallery room, capable of hosting a variety of shows. The lighting is perfect and the open space creates a great environment for receptions held at the opening of all new galleries (always including great food!). John Brown University has a wide variety of amazing artists in the upcoming gallery shows, and has hosted prominent shows such as Tim Ernst, the St. John's Bible, and Makoto Fujimura. The gallery also hosts many of John Brown University's finest local artists, faculty and students. We also have a Student Gallery in our other building, Windgate Visual Arts East. This features the work of JBU students in solo and collaborative shows.
