ST. JAMES ART GALLERY EXHIBIT

“Interpretations of Reformation Art:
Original works inspired by art work of Reformation artists”

The St. James Artist Group
Artists’ Reception: Sunday, October 8 at 6:00pm, following 5:00pm Jazz Vespers with guest jazz vocalist Marilyn Keller.
St. James Lutheran Church, 1315 SW Park Ave. Portland, OR 97201

The St. James Artist Group explores the works of the three Reformation artists: Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Dürer and Matthias Grünewald as inspiration in creating new works. What do the works of these Reformation artists suggest to us today? In various media, photography, print, paint, and drawing materials the St. James Artist group attempts to answer this question in individual styles from abstraction to expressionism to realism. The display pairs the artists’ works in reference to the Reformation art pieces whose images and themes that inspired them. Works are on display in Pioneer Chapel Art Gallery during the month of October. Viewing times Monday-Tuesday, Thursday-Friday 9am-3pm, Wednesdays 9-11am & 1-3pm, Sundays 11am-12pm, and by appointment. (Chelsea: 503-227-2439)
