St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 45 W. Winter St., will showcase an exhibition called “We Three Kings” this Advent season.
The show of artworks depicting the visit of the Magi to the Christ child features 23 paintings, prints and sculptural pieces from 13 countries and marks the sixth year of the church’s “Art in the Sanctuary” program.
The works in the exhibition range from a sculpture of the Three Kings made from an oil drum lid by Haitian artisans to a painting on linen by Australian aboriginal artist Linda Syddick Napaltjarri. Italian fresco-on-canvas painter Bernardino Toppi depicts the Wise Men as medieval horsemen. Chinese artist He Qi presents the trio in costumes from the Peking Opera.
The highlight of the show is a hand-cut stencil print of the “Adoration of the Magi” by Japanese master printmaker Sadao Watanabe, say organizers.
“We Three Kings” opens on the first Sunday of Advent, Nov. 29, and runs through Epiphany Sunday on Jan. 3.
Visitors may see the show on Fridays from noon to 2 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 1 pm. Individuals and groups are also welcome to visit on other days by appointment, organizers say.
