The Saints of Bonhoeffer House
Artist Q & A and reception 6:30 p.m. June 23, 2018
Come meet the artists! WC has been blessed to host this fabulous exhibit. Come find out more about the vision of this project and the people of the Bonhoeffer community.
The Saints of the Bonhoeffer House offers an artistic journey that tells the story of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer House, a New Monastic community that walks with the homeless and homesick in Old East Dallas. House residents Josh Love and Ryan Klinck collected stories, interviews, and photos of past and present members of the community over the winter and spring of 2018, slowly turning what they collected into iconographic pieces. Their work seeks to reveal the divine image within each person of their community, presenting them in the full glory of sainthood. These icons and the stories with them lead us to ask the question, “Who really are the Saints in our lives?”
WC Art Gallery: Solo exhibit by Linda Bein
Opens with a reception 6:30 p.m. July 7, 2018
As a primarily self-taught artist, Linda Bein has attended numerous classes and workshops from local and nationally known artists. Her works have been exhibited in shows in the Trinity Arts Guild Gallery, the member show of the Society of Watercolor artist, Artists of Texas yearly show at the Dutch Art Gallery, and Art251. Bein also participates in the Guild’s traveling art show at local businesses and libraries in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Her paintings are in private collections across the United States.
Although she likes to experiment with various media and techniques, transparent water color is Bein’s primary media. Her love of the earth and Mother Nature are reflected in her works, even abstracts turn into trees and countryside. Even though she is predominately a landscape artist, Bein enjoys painting different subject matter using a wide variety of materials. Recently, she has been experimenting with equine subjects. Bein’s belief that we as people are forever changing and growing is carried through her art with different media and subjects. To stay the same would be… to be left behind.
