The Cathedral has been blessed by the presence of a growing number of visual artists who have shared their creative journeys as members of the congregation.   To celebrate these gifts of the spirit, the Cathedral Arts program devotes an exhibition every two years to their work.

There is a common tendency among artists to return to certain subjects again and again, even as their artistic approaches change and develop over time. These subjects, or “themes” can be figures either real or symbolic, or visual ideas having to do with color, texture, line, or form. This exhibit prompts us to ask:  Why do artists keep returning to these ideas as if there is something they haven’t completely worked out for themselves? What do they see in our world that we might be missing?

We hope this exhibition will open our eyes to a few of the infinite ‘variations’ of the abundantly diverse elements of the divinely created world we share.
