"I had the opportunity to tour the CARE gallery space as part of a summer GTU class. The event was educational and inspirational. My father was a professional artist so I grew in art museums. The experience at the CARE gallery was educational, intimate and organic. The educational component grew out of the interaction with you, my fellow students and the displayed artwork. Thank you for your time and your excellent and insightful leadership of a wonderful program."
Dr. Lawrence Vilardo
"As a Minister in training at PSR, the museum and gallery has been a major part of my life here. I enjoy stopping by periodically and having conversations with the artwork being presented. As a visual artist, I love re-exploring what a piece of art has "said"....what it is "saying" today ... and imagine what it "will say" in the future. I encounter the Divine every time I visit. Thank you for taking the time with us this morning."
Greg Davis 3rd year, MDIV student PSR
"Many thanks for the tour of the gallery this morning. I found Carin's insights and exercises to be helpful resources for both the class curriculum and my larger desire to evaluate and implement visual arts in my rabbinate. How fortunate PSR is to have this resource for its emerging clergy and the community."
Daniel A. Weiner Rabbi Temple De Hirsch Sinai Seattle
"It made me reflect about how perspective (artist vs. archeologist) affects the way we view the world, and reminds me to take time to see the world as art."

SEPTEMBER 3 - DECEMBER 13
Birds of Longing featuring Laurie Wohl
OPENING RECEPTION: September 11, 2013, 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. in the Doug Adams Gallery.
2011 CARE grant recipient Laurie Wohl interweaves Muslim, Jewish and Christian poetry and spiritual texts from the period of the Convivencia in Spain (eighth through fifteenth centuries) with contemporary Middle Eastern poets, particularly Palestinian and Israeli. She presents the common themes and striking parallels between Arabic and Hebrew texts—similarly rich in poetry of spiritual love, extensive poetry of exile, and poetry of nostalgia for Andalusia.
An audio component is integral to the project and will consist of English, Arabic, and Hebrew readings of the poems and spiritual texts contained in the work.
FEBRUARY 6 - MAY 23
OPENING RECEPTION: February 6, 2014, 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. in the Doug Adams Gallery.
A curated collection of pieces from Paul Roorda’s The End of the Book and Slate Requiem series will be displayed in the Doug Adams Gallery. Both series use repurposed religious materials, aged and damaged sacred texts and slate tiles from an aged and leaking church to explore the connections between age-old rituals and the re- evaluation of dearly held convictions. Roorda uses deeply symbolic materials such as gold leaf, blood, ashes, beeswax and smoke to help create works that echo the reverence of sacred icons while examining the erosion of traditional beliefs.
