On April 8th, the Resurrection Brooklyn arts community hosted their debut gallery exhibition, Via Dolorosa, or the Twelve Stations of the Cross, at our common space in the Jay St.-MetroTech area. The artwork displayed was created exclusively by resurrection artists and featured performance art, pastry art, embroidery, as well as traditional photography and painting techniques.
The event also doubled as a silent auction with proceeds benefiting Resurrection Brookyln’s Arts Ministry and Mercy Team funds. The arts ministry considered the event a huge success with more than 100 people in attendance and generous donations for nearly every painting. Not only were we pleased to launch our first gallery event, but we also loved kicking off Holy Week by meditating on the stations of the cross together.
The arts ministry hopes to host more gallery events in the future so stay tuned for forthcoming information about that. If you are an artist and would like to be involved, please contact Daniel Mease.
