An art exhibit titled "Picturing the Parables" will be on display Sept. 1-Oct. 7 on the upper level of Center for Faith and Life on the campus of Luther College. This art display will include numerous works completed by 20 different artists who have visually interpreted Christ's parables. The exhibit is just one of many other exhibits that is sponsored by the organization Christians in the Visual Arts.
Artists featured in this exhibit include Kirsten Malcolm Berry, Joan Bohlig, Aber Block, Anne Brink, Delynn Coppoletti, Shirley Cunningham, Wayne Forte, Kathy Hettinga, Ryan Jackson, Edward Knippers, Marianne Lettieri, David Levine, David McCoy, Dan McGregor, Gwen MeHarg, Andy Rash, George Robinson, Lisa Snow Lady, Tim Timmerman and Gregg Wilimek.
The 29 pieces of artwork on display will vary from time-honored and non-traditional media to abstract pieces that display how God resolved to use the incarnation of his son to spread the word of his own existence. Dating back to the fifth century, mosaic images have been created to demonstrate how Christ has continually served as a source of inspiration to artists around the world; the pieces on display will incorporate this idea and depict the scenes, the life and the ministry of Jesus Christ.
