WANDERING SPIRIT: African Wax Prints, opens August 27 in the Story Gallery at Grace Point Church. We’re very pleased to present this collection, curated by Gifty Benson of ExhibitsUSA, Mid-America Arts Alliance.
Grace Point attenders may have noticed, at times, similar garments worn by individuals who have visited various African nations through our Global Adventure trips. We invite anyone who has such garments to wear them on Sundays throughout the exhibit! You can be our “living models!”
The colorful batik patterns in these fabrics are perfect representations of the vibrant cultures and personalities found in Africa, and the quality of technique and execution are truly fascinating upon close examination.
