Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 6-8pm
Artist’s Talk: Saturday, March 25, 4pm
In the site-specific installation Flocks & Flowers, DC-based artist Nathan Manuel explores the path of the faithful in a largely secular culture. Using drawing on paper, painting on panel and wall, collage and found text, Manuel weaves a visual account of the experience of Christians with one another and within the contemporary world. The installation tells the story of a lone sheep who tries to find his way through the world; this path is conveyed with elements from Manuel’s own life such as found objects, found photos and “found” words – phrases he overhears as he passes by people in the city. According to Manuel, "I create my work to foster an exchange about faith, art and popular culture. I hope to inspire these conversations through my imagery and the raw materials from which my work is constructed.” Flocks & Flowers is on view in the Gallery at Flashpoint March 3 – April 1, 2006.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 12-6 pm or by appointment
