Grove City College to host "Christ is Born" traveling art exhibit

1/23/2013

Grove City College will host “Christ is Born,” a traveling art exhibition, from Tuesday, Feb. 12, through Saturday, March 9, 2013, in the Pew Fine Arts Center Art Gallery on campus. An opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15.

The exhibit is a program of CIVA (Christians in the Visual Arts). The 19 pieces in the exhibition tell the story that Christ is born, God is with us. The works span five centuries and 10 countries.

The show begins with a 16th century woodcut of the Annunciation by Albrect Altdorfer, followed by the Vistitation by Albrecht Dürer, and including works by historical artists Aegidius Sadeler, Simon Fricius, Jacob Jordean and Henri Matisse, as well as more contemporary artists such as Joan Bohilg, Sadao Watanabe, Rudolph Bostic, Bruce Herman, Tatiana Grant and Tyrus Clutter.  Each piece offers interesting and informative insights into the biblical text and the way artists have interpreted the incarnation story.

The Art Gallery is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 12 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is also open during evening events in the Pew Fine Arts Center.

For more information on the exhibit, contact Grove City College Gallery Director Kathy Rhoades at (724) 450-1528 or kjrhoades@gcc.edu
