World-renowned artist and architect James Hubbell will showcase a selection of his works in an exhibit entitled “That Which Must Be Hidden” at the St. James
May 18 to July 23 ,2017
T to TH 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Sat & Sun 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
The two-month exhibit, in the old library and adjacent courtyard, will feature stained glass, paintings and sculptures. It will be open to the public Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Private showings will be available by appointment through the church office.
Hubbell has written five poems specifically for the exhibit and will be present at many of the free events planned around the art show, beginning with an Opening Night Reception on Friday, May 19 and then a Taizé Service two days later on May 21.
St. James will host a private showing for San Diego’s top non-profit art groups on May 31. The 85-year-old artist hopes his exhibit will be a catalyst for bringing together local arts organizations in an effort to expand their offerings.
“Through art we may break the shell and allow the real world to influence us,” says Hubbell. “We have spent the last 500 years trying to understand the world by dividing it into parts [and] now are at the task of putting our world back together.”
The Rev’d Mark Hargreaves, Rector, will lead a conversation on June 9 with Hubbell’s son, Drew, about art and its environment. Drew runs a San Diego-based architecture firm specializing in green building processes and materials. A light reception will follow this event.
