The Rev. Frank Murphy's exhibition "Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend Me Your Faces" will be on display Monday through Nov. 15 at the Berry College Moon Gallery.
A gallery talk will be at 7 p.m. Monday (Oct. 21) and the exhibit is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Murphy has worked on Berry's Campus as a part-time Baptist minister since 1999, and exhibited in the Moon Gallery previously in 1994. He is also a past member of the Rome Art Coterie, the Christians in Visual Arts, and has served as a past co-president of the Rome Area Council for the Arts.
The paintings exhibited will range from formal portraits to informal sketches of a portrait-like nature.
"Much of my life is about the visual and images and the seen but also about faith and belief and the unseen," Murphy said. The paintings have images associated with faith and Christianity, and he described his work as using shadow and light. Murphy said he hopes to "break through some of our preconceived ideas and see the familiar narratives in a new light."
