June 25, 2017, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Portiuncula Guild
The weekend concludes on Sunday afternoon at the Portiuncula Guild with a solo show by Sandee Johnson of Ashville NC (formally of Bedford) entitled “The Holy Gospel of the Free Market”. With 20 mixed media over paintings, Johnson unleashes a scathing critique of the current administration’s distortion of capitalism, the Christian faith and American democracy. Johnson makes use of small black and white images from an old travel guide as a base for her work. Over detailed images taken of a medieval cathedral door depicting scenes from the bible, Johnson paints a Trumpian vision of the world in which greed and selfishness replace shared community values and care for others. Scenes from salvation history that once formed the foundation of right relationship between god, humanity and creation are overwritten with tableaus of free market capitalism in which self interest, hatred, power and greed become celebrated values.
