Earlier, I neglected to mention that we went to the North Carolina Museum of Art while we were there. The new part of the museum looks from the outside like warehouses, but inside it is light and airy and is simply one of the best-designed art spaces I have ever seen. Here are two of my favorite pieces of the contemporary art that was there. The figure was covered in buttons and made us smile.
The painting reminded me of Terry Jarrard-Dimond's work, which I love.
Saturday afternoon we hung the artwork on the sanctuary walls. The sanctuary was designed so that the walls surrounding the seating could show artwork -- and it's great because the congregation can look at the art while they are worshipping. Art and spirituality -- what a lovely combination!
Later, I will post whatever pictures I took that actually came out:-).
