An evening with the Artist – St. Gabriel the Archangel

On December 11th, I had the honor of previewing “The Annunciation” at St. Gabriel Parish.  Over 100 wonderful souls braved the cold and freezing rain to spend the evening viewing the art and to a participate in a discussion around its inception and production.

I am constantly amazed at how each person that looks at a piece of art can see something completely different from someone else.  People will view it from as far back as possible, to take it all in, or as as close as they can get, hands touching the art.  It’s inspiring and moving to witness.

Whether child or adult, the perception of the images will vary as the person in the imagining.  I look forward to the next viewing and to hear and see the reaction to the art.

Gabriel gave Mary a choice.   She said yes.  I am so glad she did or this mural would not exist.

The Annunciation – St. Gabriel the Archangel

The annunciation story is a foundational part of St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish in Louisville KY. This scene, and the many events that unfolded from it, is being painted in a space 16 feet high by 21 feet wide. The mural is visible from Hudson Lane and will be a welcoming view for many who visit the parish. The area is being transformed into a space for everyone to further develop their education and faith. The mural is scheduled for completion in the Spring of 2011. Read More
