A new exhibit coming to Zionsville, IN
I'm very excited to have been invited to participate in a contemporary exhibit to accompany Remembered Light, An Exhibition featuring glass fragments from World War II at the SullivanMunce Cultural Center in Zionsville, Indiana, June 25 through August 20, 2011.
"Frederick Alexander McDonald (1903 - 2003) served as a U.S. Army Chaplain during WWII. As McDonald traveled throughout war-torn Europe, he found himself dismayed by the destruction of sacred places of worship. He started picking up shards of glass from burned and bombed out churches, chapels and synagogues in England, France and Germany. He saw the tiny remnants as markers of a war's tragedy and hoped that one day they could serve as testament to the sacrifices made by so many. The shards and their stories dramatize the hard-won liberty that Fred McDonald's generation gave the rest of us.
This unique exhibition is made up of 25 stained glass 'windows' of different dimensions, created by 13 artists working with various media and sensibilities. The windows are accompanied by a narrative that explains when and where the shards were collected."
The contemporary exhibit will feature area artists working in glass, stained glass, and mosaic. I am honored to have had 4 pieces chosen for this exhibit.
The SullivanMunce Cultural Center is located at 205-225 West Hawthorne Street, Zionsville, Indiana. Visit their website to learn more about events there.
