Parishoner Michele Ridgeway has an exhibition of cats in the Lower Room.
"I began painting the cats in the fall of 2016- they were initially inspired by the cats that I had adopted, but became more of a drive to express my own feelings “out loud.” As subjects, the cats and their antics gave me much joy during a time of political change and fear AND hope. The cats were painted as bold, quick, stylized portraits of bold colors in a simplified format of outline and paint. They were quickly painted with colors intuitively mixed. Their expressions range from bold calmness with closed eyes to aggressive straightforward stares. I feel that as works they communicate more in their colors and faces than I am able to communicate with my own conversations. "
