Gallery highlights beauty of creation and spiritual renewal
Submitted By Carol Hamilton
The recently opened Dove Gallery is located on the site of Park Victoria Church in Milpitas and displays a wide range of mediums, styles, and local talent. Exhibitors include professional, emerging, and youthful artists with both two- and three-dimensional works on display. Dove Gallery is the brainchild of two local artists, Carol Manasse and Roballoo, who desired to use their art to honor their faith and provide an outlet for spiritually-inspired artists to exhibit their works.
ÒGenesis: The Art of New BeginningsÓ will be the grand opening exhibit of the gallery to the public. The theme ÒGenesisÓ touches on new creation, fresh beginnings, and renewal. The historic account contained in the scriptural book of Genesis will be a highlight of the exhibit.
ÒCreation, Temptation, and FallÓ by Manasse is a five-piece acrylic on wood wall hanging approximately 4Õ tall by 6Õ wide that provides a scrolling account of the first three chapters of Genesis. Six orbs depict the six days that God created life on earth. The center of the piece is devoted to Adam and Eve and the forbidden fruit, and the final scene shows the desolation caused by sin and the barred access to the Garden of Eden.
Another piece by Manasse, ÒBreaking Out of Your Shell,Ó depicts overcoming oneÕs inhibitions and embracing new experiences. It is pen, ink, and watercolor on 11x14 paper. Manasse is a modern cubist who uses fragmentation to depict changes in depth, motion, and time progression.
ÒSodomÓ is by an emerging artist who goes by the alias NH. It is a 20x24 acrylic painting on canvas depicting LotÕs wife who fled Sodom with her family but made the mistake of looking backward to see GodÕs judgment on the city and she was turned into a pillar of salt. The account is found in Genesis chapter 19.
