the show goes up

Today we are installing my art for the "Consider the Lilies" show.  My art will be displayed in St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The church was built of stone in 1949 in the Gothic Revival style. I have always loved this building, the Gothic style is my favorite type of architecture for a space of worship. Maybe it is all that time studying art history? Or is that I was privileged to visit England and France and see the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world?
I also love this church for the worship space and the church family within. Our children were all baptized in this place, and two of my children were married here.
