Janet McKenzie's Art in Vermont

Edward J. Blum

If you find yourself in Vermont this August, I highly recommend taking a look at the exhibit listing below.

Holiness and the Feminine Spirit  

3- The Child McKenzie - small
The Waitsfield United Church of Christ will exhibit the paintings of Vermont artist, Janet McKenzie, during the Vermont Festival of the Arts in August. The exhibit Holiness & the Feminine Spirit is an exhibit of fifteen paintings modeled on two groups (women and people of color) that have been under-represented in traditional Christian imagery.  Her painting Jesus of the People will be on view, offering a rare opportunity to see the original painting.  Selected First Place Winner of the National Catholic Reporter’s global competition for an image of Christ for the new millennium, the painting invariably generates conversation.   Janet’s paintings reflect her hope for greater love among all of us, for seeing with honest eyes, having an open heart, and an open mind.  She strives to create art that celebrates our inherent similarities rather than our differences. What lies beyond skin and gender, within the depth of our universal soul is more alike than we’ll ever know.
