Art of Faiths – Religions of the World: Diversity and Tolerance
Waterworks Visual Arts Center, Downtown Salisbury, NC
Art of Faiths features three solo exhibitions by artists Syed Ahmad, Alice Levinson, and Robert Radin, and a group show with featured artists Shireen Alborno, Carol Bomer, Robert Crum, and Betti Pettinati-Longinotti. Through an assemblage of photographs, paintings, and mixed media works, these artists express their personal relationships to their faiths including Muslim, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Christianity. The visual images communicate the breadth and complexity of ideas of acceptance and social inclusiveness through art.
Expressing one’s religious beliefs through visual expression has been a basic tenant of mankind throughout the ages. From Paleolithic cave art found in France and detailed clay and stone works by Aztec Indians, to the architectural
masterpieces of construction and artistic detail found in cathedrals, mosques, and temples around the world – it is with us. Through the use of visual mediums, we hope to promote understanding and tolerance and to prompt discussions about religions and cultures of the world today. Programming for this exhibition will include a public forum led by a panel of artists, theologians, and laity who will discuss how art always interacts and supports religion presently, as it has throughout history.
Join us for the Opening Reception on Friday, November 30. Informal gallery talks with the artists begin at 5pm
followed by the reception from 6-8pm. Free and open to the public.
