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.
March 26- May 6 – Receptions April 8, 5:00 – 7:00 pm and April 22, 5:00-7:00 pm.
FRAMING FRANCE Paintings by Barbara Mandel
Printing Photographs: Variations Photographs by David Scherbel
Barbara Mandel and David Scherbel, colleagues for ten years at the Holton-Arms School, return to RRUUC for another 2-person exhibit of recent works. Mandel’s paintings will feature landscapes, chefs, and culinary creations from Paris to the south of France. Scherbel’s photographs demonstrate how the simple decision of what paper to print a photograph on influences the viewer’s experience.
Atmospheric, soft oil paintings by Mandel will contrast with and complement Scherbel’s photographs, which display a variety of photographic prints: pigment prints on traditional photographic paper, gilded photographs on paper vellum, pigment photographs on various handmade drawing papers, and gum bichromate prints.
