Gathering Knowledge was a series of paintings completed for the Center for University Ministries of Indiana University. I completed seven large scale paintings that are currently installed in the Center’s Chapel. These paintings illustrate the stories of seven women from the old and New Testament. To rediscover the depths of women’s stories I interviewed women from 12 different churches in Bloomington Indiana and Cleveland Ohio about their faith journeys. The interviews were in effort to discover the living presence of God transcended from the lives of the women in the bible on down through the women of modern day through a history of oral history.
