Canton, Ohio Museum of Art requests “Balance” for exhibit

Leave a comment

I had a very welcome email a few weeks ago from Michele Waalkes, the

curator of the exhibit Sacred Voices, asking for my painting,

Balance, for the show at the Canton, Ohio Museum of Art

from December 2013 to March 2014.

Balance

Sacred Voices is planned as a companion exhibit concurrent with The St. John’s Bible, a phenomenal undertaking by a team of artists coordinated by Donald Jackson to create the entire Bible in the ancient illuminated manuscript tradition. The project was commissioned in 1998 by the Benedictine monks of St. John’s College in Minnesota.

St. John's Bible

The Saint John’s Bible is a work of art and a work of theology. A team of artists coordinated by Donald Jackson in Wales and a team of scholars in Central Minnesota have brought together the ancient techniques of calligraphy and illumination with an ecumenical Christian approach to the Bible rooted in Benedictine spirituality. The result is a living document and a monumental achievement.
