Station of the Cross | Janet McKenzie
February 5 — March 20, 2016
Vermont artist Janet McKenzie paintings depict an inner strength that often challenge and comfort the viewer. Ms. McKenzie's work is collected and exhibited around the world. At the Millennium Ms. McKenzie's image of Jesus, “Jesus of the People”, was selected winner of the National Catholic Reporter's "Jesus 2000” competition, by judge Sister Wendy Beckett. The painting was revealed for the first time on the "Today Show" during an interview with Matt Lauer and NCR editor, Michael Farrell. "Jesus of the People" confronts stereotypical thinking by celebrating Jesus as African American. The feminine aspect is served by the fact that the model for this painting was a woman.
