FCC presents Being Here tapestries exhibition by Laura Foster Nicholson

FCC is privileged to welcome artist Laura Nicholson Foster and show her handwoven tapestries in a Chapel exhibition during the month of May. Entitled Being Here, the collection derives from a time in the artist’s life of personal transformation from deep sadness to acceptance. Images of bees, a metaphor for the soul, surround figures in the yoga pose of rest and release. The figures move from a state of unsettled pain to the gift of acceptance.The show will be open to the public Mondays-Thursdays, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, and Fridays – Sundays, 9:00 am – Noon.

On Sunday, May 17, Ms. Foster Nicholson will speak about her work at a reception in her honor at 11:30 am in the Chapel. Prior to that she will speak to the children of the church at 10:00 am in the Chapel.
