Church of the Holy Apostles in the Penn Wynne section of Wynnewood is hosting an art exhibition for Lent entitled, "Jerusalem: Meditations on the Holy City." The exhibition will feature woodcuts prints by Margaret Adams Parker, as well as photographs for the 2019 Diocese of Pennsylvania Pilgrimage to the Holy Land by Gabriela Machado and James Stambaugh. A portion of the proceeds from art sales will be donated to the Jerusalem based Princess Basma Center, a children's hospital and school operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.
Margaret Adams Parker is well established printmaker and sculptor based in Alexandria, Virginia whose work often engages themes at the intersection biblical spirituality and social justice. Since 1986, her work has appeared in dozens of solo and group exhibits. Her commissions include large-scale sculptures for Duke Divinity School and Virginia Theological Seminary. Her recent work includes a large-scale set of Stations of the Cross which will be on display at the Bardenheim Museum in Monroe, Louisiana during Lent of 2020. In 2016, she received the Honors Award from the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art, and Architecture for her sculpture, "Mary as Prophet." Parker's woodcuts of Jerusalem were based on observations made during her several pilgrimages to the Holy City, most recently with her church, St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Arlington, Virginia.
