Constraints of Tangibility Art Exhibit

January 7 to March 29

What and who contains the personal experience of God? Does the mere existence of the vessel or person alone make “I AM” perceptible?

Created by artist Linda Langner, of Pittsford, N.Y., the images and assemblages in Constraints of Tangibility challenge viewers to consider a series of questions: Is the intangible authentic when the tangible disintegrates, and the only remains are the ethereal imprint or memory of the vessel, experience or person? Is tangibility necessary to validate and affirm the “being” of any person’s existence or experience?

This exhibit comprised of painting, tree bark, and found objects is about the intangible intimacy of God and lovers. It addresses the weaving and layered interleaving of soul and grace, the universal essence of joy and sorrow in the objects and people of creation. It is constrained by tangibility yet freed by the possibilities of intangibility.

The exhibit is open to the public Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Northeastern Seminary, 2265 Westside Drive, Rochester, N.Y. 14624. For information call 585.594.6800 or contact
