Interfaith art show inspired by Epiphany

INTERFAITHANTONIO — About 21/2 years ago, the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas opened up the bishop’s office for periodic use as an art gallery — a way to showcase the work of its members.

Called the Cathedral House Gallery, it will host an opening reception Sunday for a new exhibit, “Illumination.” The theme pays homage to Epiphany, the Christian holiday marking the visit by three kings after Christ’s birth and their following of the star to Bethlehem.

Because the famous kings or wise men hailed from afar, believed to be from Arabia and Persia, they came with distinct cultures and religion. The exhibit in like manner expanded the scope of artists this year to include diverse faith backgrounds, organizers said, including a few from those ancient regions.

Catholics, Protestants and Muslims are represented in what is a gesture of good will and a celebration of artistic and spiritual expression.art gallery — a way to showcase the work of its members.
