We've been sick for weeks it seems. I still have the naggy, hang-y-on-y cough that is worst at night. It was nice to get out of the house on Sunday with a destination in mind. I went to see Gerrie's show at the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral.
First, I have to tell you what a beautiful church this is. The exhibit is in this hall with the inlaid labyrinth in the floor and beautiful wood and windows all around. What a setting for a show. Gerrie's work is all inspired by the trip she and Steve took to the Holy Land last spring and it is a lovely exhibit.
This piece is one of my favorites, inspired by the Dead Sea.
This piece, representing the wall that separates the West Bank from Jerusalem, was another favorite. Very graphic and effective.
Gerrie was not feeling well (I think everyone in Portland is sick) but was a trooper. She has worked so hard getting this all together and I would say it paid off. That's Virginia O'Donnell with Gerrie in the picture. More of her work and that gorgeous window in the background.
