New Addition to Faith’s Art Collection

He Qi Peace Be StillFaith Lutheran Church has several works of art installed along the brick wall in Messiah Hall including a wood sculpture of an angel, a brass cross from our earlier church, an oil painting by John Turner, and two batik prints from Kifula Lutheran Church in Tanzania. Recently, another piece was acquired as a continuing process to round out our permanent collection.

The new acquisition is a large, professionally framed, giclee (pronounced zhee-klay) print.  The printing process uses fade-resistant, archival inks which result in a fine-art reproduction. The work of art is called “Peace Be Still” and is one of many of the artist’s designs depicting stories from the Old and New Testament as you can see in the adjacent poster. Look closely to see the various icons represented in this work as the artist visually tells the story of Jesus calming the Sea of Galilee.
