The One Called Jesus

The Travelling Religious Art Exhibit collection titled The One Called Jesus has reached Western Canada and is in Morinville.

The Exhibit has been touring and travelling the country since 2002 and is currently at Ecole Notre Dame School.

The exhibit was open to the students and the public until Monday. On Tuesday it left for a three day stop in Legal.

The exhibit has 50 impressive and evocative coloured clay sculptures by Canadian artist Maurice Gaudreault and is sponsored by the Diocese of Hearst.

The bilingual Tour Director and Coordinator is Sister Therese Turcotte, Sister of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin.

She has a very tight schedule with the many tours to be conducted of the exhibit during its brief stop.

On Friday Angie Gibeault, Irma Bulger and Simone Gervais took the opportunity to visit the exhibit.

The collection is history, art, and religion all tied up as one.
