RRUUC supports art as an important component of the life of members, friends, and the broader local community. Art is an expression of the human spirit. Art often touches viewers in a deep and significant way and can provide experience of mystery and wonder, which is one source of insight for Unitarian Universalists.
The Fine Arts Committee organizes art exhibits at RRUUC for the benefit of area artists and the appreciation of those using the Fellowship Hall. Most art at these exhibits is for sale, with a portion of proceeds going to RRUUC. Click here for instructions for artists on how to apply to use our space.
May 9-June 22 Meryl Silver’s – Ethiopian Highlands
Reception May 18 at 6 p.m.
Meryl Silver is a Maryland based photographer, originally from New York City. Most of her early work focused on the people and street scenes in New York City. For example, she completed a major project on the homeless who spent their nights in a church on Park Avenue, where, over a period of years, she came to know the nightly inhabitants.
In that project, as in Ethiopian Highlands, she tried to capture the timelessness of the place and the warmth of its inhabitants. Ethiopian Highlands presents images of the people and landscape of Northern Ethiopia.
