Exhibit: Sept. 16 - Oct. 13, 2016
Opening Reception: Sept. 15, 7-9 pm
The Jacob Spori Art Gallery is pleased to host J. Kirk Richards' new exhibit, entitled "The Trumpet Shall Sound: Angels and Messengers in the Bible". This new show features pieces inspired by descriptions and depictions of God's divine dealings with his children, through intermediaries such as angels and heavenly messengers. Richard's new paintings portray heaven's interaction with men and women in the Old and New Testaments, from the cherubim of the Garden of Eden, to angels heralding the birth of Jesus, to John's apocalyptic visions of the last days.
