Book of Exodus illustrated at church gallery

Art works illustrating the stories and themes of the Book of Exodus make up the latest exhibit at the Atrium Gallery of Second Christian Reformed Church in Grand Haven.
Mar 9, 2014

The core of the exhibit consists of watercolor giclée prints by Sam Fink. Over a period of 17 years, he painted 40 skyscapes — one for each chapter of Exodus, with the complete Hebrew and English texts on each.

Dominating the lower atrium area is a paper sculpture by Ellen Cavenish Phillips of Atlanta. On either side of her 14-foot banner are a pillar of clouds and a pillar of fire.

In addition, Lisa Bulten has a series of abstract acrylics on the Passover, and Nora Faber has a quartet of water, fire, earth and air. The plague of frogs dominates a corner, and running up the wall are large wooden frogs by Mary Mitchell. Other works depict the Egyptian art of the period.   

The show runs through May 24.

Second Christian Reformed Church is at the corner of Robbins and Sheldon roads.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and Fridays until noon. Special arrangements for off-hour visits can be made by calling the church office at 616-842-0710.
