Mary, the mother of Jesus, has had a profound influence on Western culture and plays an important role within the Catholic and Orthodox Church traditions. God chose this humble woman to bear His son, raise him to manhood, and submit for our good. As Mother’s Day approaches, we want to also honor this mother and consider her rightful place in the life of Jesus and the life of the church. This large collection of beautiful work, in a wide range of media, reflects Mary’s role in cultures from around the world. It includes pieces by both unknown and internationally known artists.
Please plan to attend an opening reception at CPC on Sunday, May 1st at noon. Enjoy the artwork and some light refreshments, and learn more about this “most highly favored” mother from artist and teacher Nancy Hughes.
