“Be We Whole” Artists’ Talk and Reception

Oct 24, 2023

Opening celebration of the "Be We Whole" art exhibit in the Barn at Pendle Hill.
7:00-9:00pm, Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Free and open to the public. No registration required.

The "Be We Whole" exhibit will be displayed October 11, 2023 – February 26, 2024 in the Pendle Hill Barn Gallery.

The Be We Whole exhibit is a meaningful prayer of the Joined Hands Artists Collective.  It is an affirmation of our collective existence as together we strive toward wholeness.  Be We Whole represents an inclusivity that is the sum of all our intersections, rendering creative dialogue, acceptance, compassion, peace, and love.  Our title also connects with Ferron Foisy’s song, “Testimony,” which includes the refrain: 

But by my life be I spirit 

And by my heart be I woman 

And by my eyes be I open 

And by my hands be I whole 

Reception will be in the Barn, and all are welcome to attend. Meet with the artists and learn more about their works hanging in the gallery space.
