Red Bank, NJ – Gallery 135 in Red Bank will exhibit 366 digital photographs originally posted online as a year-long Facebook project by local artist Gerda Liebmann. The project, entitled “Daily Cross,” presented crucifix-like images found in natural and man-made environment by Liebmann and other collaborators around the world.
The exhibit opening will be held Saturday, March 23 at 3:00 PM. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The exhibit coincides with Holy Week, a Christian tradition that starts the following day with Palm Sunday and ends on Easter. The gallery, which occupies the same space as Red Bank Community Church, will also be open to the public on Good Friday, March 29, from 7:00-8:00 PM for a special time of prayer and contemplation.
Liebmann is known for her spiritually themed work—which includes painting, photography and installations. Most recently, she was commissioned to design the holiday window display at Red Bank luxury retailer Garmany. She has also exhibited an interpretation of the Stations of the Cross in Beijing, China and an installation based on Matthew 18:22 in Anspach, Germany.
“At first, the project felt like play, since it was fun to look for suitable images and to share them with everyone on Facebook,” said Liebmann. “But it soon took on another dimension as it began to feel more like searching the world for signs of redemption—and, by extension, the Redeemer.”
