Religious Explorations student art exhibit

Animal masks cut out of paper plates arranged on yellow posterboard surrounding a sign that reads, 'Save the Endangered Animals!' Surrounding the posterboard are pieces of student artwork individually arranged on blue posterboard, including a picture of Francis, patron saint of the animals,  watercolor images and a collage cutout of magazine images of cats arranged on purple posterboard.

Religious Explorations lead teacher Liz Bianco and I hung student artwork Saturday in the Great Hall at Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

Shown above is a grouping of art around a service project for animals.

We assembled the exhibit in time for a Sunday service that introduced RVUUF’s professional staff — including the teachers and myself as Religious Explorations administrative coordinator.

While not shown above, I also contributed a piece to the exhibit: a “Harry Potter” cartoon in which the school’s “Sorting Hat” decrees that the inhabitants at Hogwarts are members of a single “House.”

The message echoes an original homily, Lesson of the Sorting Hat.

The exhibit includes artistic expressions of the UU Seven Principles, the Divine Feminine and more. The artwork will remain on display for at least three weeks.
