The photographs in this portfolio were taken in churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples over the last 2 decades of travels throughout the world. They share a common theme of reverence and faith. This body of work, which continues to grow and evolve, examines our houses of worship, through a lens of when it was built and how it has served its faithful over time.
The Jewell Wolk Quilt Project is a collection of 11 story quilts by Jewell Wolk (1924-2011) of Cut Bank, Montana. The quilts depict a wide scope of topics from Jewell’s childhood memories, her children’s lives, women’s history and biblical storytelling. Her quilts have traveled extensively, have been widely published and documented, and have been used for many storytelling events. Her daughter, Jean is creating a booklet for each quilt, and presents a portion of the collection in this exhibition.
