Embracing Hope: Art of Janet McKenzie; Tuesday, April, 17, 2018

Tuesday  12:00 am to

Janet McKenzie's art will be displayed at Mercy by the Sea, 167 Neck Rd, from March 18 - April 29 with an Opening Reception on March 18 from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Artist Janet McKenzie is known for inclusive paintings honoring diversity with a commitment to celebrating the sanctity of women.
Janet McKenzie first came to national prominence in 2000 with her controversial dark interpretation of Christ, Jesus of the People, which won the National Catholic Reporter's "Jesus 2000" global art competition. Revealed for the first time on The Today Show, the painting, which invariably generates conversation, received a worldwide response. Orbis Books published the book, Holiness and the Feminine Spirit: The Art of Janet McKenzie, which won the 2010 First Place Award for Spirituality from the Catholic Press Association, and The Way of the Cross: The Path to New Life, a collaboration with Sister Joan Chittister, OSB.
