Five large canvases in the Eastern Style of Iconography, depicting Mary, Jesus, and Gabriel. On display at Pleasant Street United Methodist Church during Advent and Christmas. Painted by Rockport Artist: Kathryn Oliver (kathrynoliver.com). Artist’s Statement: “I discovered a love for making pictures as a small child, self taught and driven by curiosity and passion — myth and metaphor has been an area of study and contemplation that I return to throughout. My interest in literature and symbolism forms the inspiration to weave timeless wisdom into visual story-telling for paintings, photography, film and theater.” The canvases will be in the Sanctuary for Sunday service at 10:30, Christmas Eve at 7 PM, and may also be viewed Monday to Thursday, 8:30 to 2 PM (please check in at the office first).
