Free Art Exhibit- Reflections of Christ

If you're in Washington or New York state, you NEED to go see this art exhibit! It's on tour right now- Mark Mabry is a photographer, and has re-created scenes from Christ's life and ministry. It's free, and the art work is just amazing. (He has a book out, by the same title I think. There wasn't any mention of it at the event, so I'm going on memory.) Even my three-year-old was whispering. When she saw the picture of Jesus on the cross, she climbed down from her Daddy's arms and looked up at the photo and sadly said "Daddy, Jesus died."

The joy and pain the photographer has captured is just riveting- not only of our Savior, but of the people around him. If you can make the drive to one of these locations, you won't be sorry.

It's three hours from us...which is a bit too far to go for just one art exhibit. (If we go that far, it's for a vacation and to stay the night, usually.)

Sounds beautiful!!!

We're going tomorrow!

That's way, way to far for us.

But it sounds lovely.

I'd like to see this. I wonder if it will come here.???

I'm still enjoying my glasses chain. I never lose the darn things anymore, plus I can see, which is always good.

Have a great day!

That sounds cool -- my parents live 20 min from Bellevue; I'll have to tell them to go check it out.

By the way, did you just start cloth diapering? I've been a C.D. Mama since Elliot was born. Love it!


Debbie said...

I wish! Sounds great.

Thanks for sharing

Mark Mabry is a gifted photographer. This exhibit is a must see.
My son, Elder Austin Smith is a missionary in the Everett Washington Mission. I believe he will be one of the missionaries at the exhibit in Everett. Elder Smith is from Mesa Arizona which is where Mark Mabry is also from. If you see Elder Smith there, tell him his mom said hi and to please write home!
