If you thought manuscript illustrations created by theologians trained in writing on calfskin with quill pens had become an extinct art form, you may be interested in a exhibit now at the Alameda Free Library (2nd Floor, 1550 Oak Street, Alameda).
The CARE art collection represents 24 works, with themes ranging from biblical scenes to symbolic iconography to abstract imagery. A broad variety of media is represented in the collection, including oil and acrylic on canvas, etchings, engravings, photographs, and sculpture. The works represent a variety of faith traditions and reflect the ecumenical and spiritual character of the GTU. Important artists include Rembrandt, Chagall and Rouault. Together these works capture the intimacy of creation, presenting a visual theology to the public.
