I am pleased to invite you to view a special solo exhibit of paintings in the lovely neo-gothic James Chapel at Union Theological Seminary. It’s a spectacular setting, and we are using the opportunity to put together a mini-retrospective of work that will resonate in this unique context.

If you’re not familiar with Union, it’s worth a visit. Founded in 1836, the school has been one of the leading centers of liberal Christianity since the late 19th century. The seminary is adjacent to Columbia University, Teachers College, Barnard College, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and the Manhattan School of Music. Its Burke library is the largest theological library in the Western Hemisphere. In fitting with the school’s urban context, Union has been home to leading lights of both liberation and womanist theology. The school’s approach has long been ecumenical and oriented toward social justice.

If you are able, please join us for the opening reception:

April 15, 2010 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Union Theological Seminary
James Chapel
3041 Broadway at 121st Street, NYC 10027 (map)
