Bradford Gallery Opening Reception
My Bright Abyss: Paintings and Prints
Thursday, October 12, 6:00-7:30pm
Opening Reception & Artist Presentation
Bradford Gallery & Legacy Hall
St. George’s is thrilled to welcome the work of Makoto Fujimura to the Bradford Gallery, brought to Nashville in partnership with Covenant Presbyterian Church and the Liturgy Collective. In addition to being a contemporary artist whose distinctive “slow art” has been featured in galleries and museums around the world, Fujimura is a speaker, writer, and advocate. Though he once considered these paintings too dark and incomplete for any of his exhibitions; however, he recently discovered a “brightness to their countenance.” The exhibit, titled My Bright Abyss: Paintings and Prints, explores the living hope of Christian faith amongst the darkness and lament that can be found in everyday life: quite literally seeking the light amongst the dark. Join us for the opening reception with a special presentation by the artist.
