Into the Holy Lands
photographs by Jim Haberman

September 21 through October 27, 2012

A reception for the artist will be held Sunday afternoon, September 23 from 2-5 PM.

Into the Holy Lands: an exhibition of photography portraying the beautiful, but raw, landscape of the area associated with at least three well-known religions, and many others that have faded from our consciousness. How can such a challenging environment have been the birthplace for the beliefs and values that many of us hold dear? Into the Holy Lands will be on display beginning Friday, September 21, but the artist’s reception will be held Sunday afternoon, September 23 from 2-5PM. Please join us, and invite your friends to come along.
