Thresholds of Faith: Four Entries into the Beyond
Featured Artists: Taraneh Hemami, Lynn Marie Kirby, Cara Levine, and Ali Naschke-Messing
Manresa Gallery is pleased to announce Thresholds of Faith: Four Entries into the Beyond. This exhibition stretches the more traditional understanding of the limits expected of (imposed by) a faith and allows a flexibility to see how one can move beyond our fixed expectations (of wholeness and holiness) in a personal/communal journey that seeks completeness.
