Mount Vernon Unitarian Church is fortunate to have several gifted artists within its midst. With the lovely space around the Fireplace in the Commons, we now have the opportunity to view their works up close and personal.
Kara Hammond Larabee was our very first exhibitor well over a year ago. She helped launch the use of the space for this very purpose. In addition to all the MVUC volunteer work Kara has been known for, she a has been an assistant professor, a lecturer, visiting artist and exhibitor at various institutions and/or galleries from as far north as Brooklyn, as far south as Savannah, Georgia and as far west as Montana. She was juried into the Torpedo Factory Art Center in 2014 and she is currently a studio resident there. (Note: Kara combined her love of MVUC and her craft in creating the special art located in the nursery space.)
Our Current Exhibitor is Herb Tyson. His works will be on display until December 15. Herb Tyson is a photographer, musician, and long-time member of Mount Vernon Unitarian Church in Alexandria, VA. A retired labor economist, he travels around the US and Canada taking his songs to UU churches, and taking his cameras to wherever scenic vistas can be found. Herb shares many of his photographs on Facebook.
