Quaker Artists: An Exhibition of the Quiet Faith

January 26 through March 3, 2016 in the Carroll Art Gallery.

Quaker

Gathering the works of Quaker artists from the Rockies and Pacific Northwest, the exhibition provides a glimpse of the creativity that often grows from quiet contemplation.  Inspired by the images of the Earth, its people, and of life, these works often convey a sense of the peace and the inner life of the artists who have created them.  As in any group of artists, the media and the expressions of their work are as varied as their unique personalities, each artist striving to express outwardly a sense of the spirit and vision that leads them to create.

Quakers are a people whose faith often informs their creations, and in these works, we hope the viewer will be able to discern a sense of the peace and harmony, which are hallmarks of the Quiet Faith.  The exhibition includes fabric art, drawings, sculpture, oil paintings, ceramics, and photography.

A free gallery opening for the exhibition will be held on Friday, January 29th from 5pm to 7pm. The exhibit opens in the St. Charles Hall Art Gallery on January 26 and will run through March 3, 2016. The gallery is open from 9am to 9pm weekdays and is closed weekends and college holidays.

Free and open to the public.
