Alexandria, July 2017 – Convergence offers a dynamic invitation to challenge perspectives on art and faith in Disdain|Desire, a mind-expanding second look into a book many people think they know – the Bible. Large scale images of Anita Breitenberg’s new illustrated Gospel series will be on display in the Gallery at Convergence July 21 – October 8, 2017 with a reception and book signing on September 17 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. The vivid and often incongruous images of MARK THIS!, WAY BACK!, HEAL ME!, and FACE IT! (Mark, Matthew, Luke and John) are composites of the old and new, the broken and whole, the destroyed and restored; a juxtaposition of the diminished and disdained with the delighted and desired.
