Now Showing: Seeing Christ in the Darkness
Georges Rouault as Graphic Artist
Seeing Christ in the Darkness is an excellent collection of the world-class prints of Georges Rouault, one of the most important printmakers of the 20th century.
Opening Reception: Friday, February 3 at 5:30pm
Exhibit showing January 15 - April 30
The graphic art in this exhibition, done at the height of the artist’s skill, shows how deeply he identified with people’s suffering and, indeed, saw within this darkness the salvation of Jesus Christ. It is appropriate that the focus of this exhibit is on Rouault as a printmaker, for it was especially in his graphic work that his religious vision took shape.
This show includes eighteen pieces from the Miserere series, five etchings from Fleurs du Mal I, several colored pieces from The Passion and Fleurs du Mal III, along with two signed works and several other prints.

Our conversation around the prints of Georges Rouault and the influence of art in our lives continues as we share a meal on Wednesday evenings in March. Each Wednesday night we will select a piece of art for reflection. Special guests will join us with their own response to the selected piece in music, storytelling, or visual art.
Everyone is welcome, but we ask that you make a reservation for the meal in advance. Reservation details will be posted here soon.

About the Bradford Gallery
St. George's is blessed by an exceptional array of beautiful art in and around our building. As part of the additions to our facility in 2020, we were grateful to include the Bradford Gallery, generously given by Lillian (Tooty) Bradford. The gallery is accessed from the West Entrance near Legacy Hall. Our hope is that this exquisite space will engage the Christian imagination and celebrate the fullness of God's kingdom through rotating exhibits.
