Larry Gross: Imaging the Rite of Way
Larry Gross taught art at Concordia University, Portland for 30 years. He has designed stained glass and liturgical furnishings for churches in Oregon and Washington. The artwork in this exhibit explores how faith and art interact through images that illustrate scripture and, in more recent works, juxtapose pictures of earth and the universe. He also enjoys the interplay of word and image through titles that sometimes evoke multiple interpretations. Mr. Gross has received the Oregon Art Educator of the year award, the Sacred Art Society award in visual art and an Artist in Residence award from Trinity Lutheran Church, Portland.
