The "Who Do You Say That I Am? Visions of Christ, Gender, and Justice" exhibit will open at the JHS Gallery in Taos, N.M., on May 12 and run through June 23. The exhibit features artists who use a spiritual perspective to explore LGBT issues, environmentalism, politics, war, technology, and industrialism.
The exhibit will open during the national Festival of Progressive Spiritual Art, being held May 11-12 in Taos. The festival also features a banquet honoring the artists and will launch the book Art That Dares: Gay Jesus, Woman Christ and More by Kittredge Cherry. Most of the artists showcased in the exhibit are in the book as well. The book tells the story behind the art, including how some of the art led to censorship, death threats, hate mail, and violence.
Tickets to the banquet are $125 and include dinner at Joseph's Table at the historic La Fonda Hotel, a copy of Art That Dares, and a VIP pass to a private reception at the JHS Gallery on May 12, 5-6 p.m. For tickets and more information contact the JHS Gallery at www.jhsgallery.com.
