Compassion to Launch in Fort Lauderdale
Terresa Ford, Betray Me With A Kiss? Mixed Media on Paper 2006.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL.- Compassion, New Works by Terresa Ford, is launching the second stop of a three-venue tour at Gallery 6 in Fort Lauderdale , FL. It will show from April 1-24 with an opening reception on April 19 from 6-8 p.m. The startling images made their premier in February at the Graham Center Art Gallery at FIU in Miami , FL. Compassion will travel to Unity Gallery in Buffalo , NY for its last stop this summer.

Compassion profiles the intersection of religious history and sumptuous color. "The works in this exhibition focus on the commonalities between religions and are in support of social and spiritual transformation," explains the artist, Terresa Ford.

Compassion is the culmination of more than eighteen months of research and studio work and is the first traveling exhibition for Ford. She explores universal religious imagery, forms of prayer, rituals of honoring the dead and iconographic heroes and heroines. Ford juxtaposes the images of biblical figures like Kadijah, first wife of the Prophet Mohammad, ad Mary, mother of Jesus to elucidate the reverence for women in both Islam and Christianity.

On display will be only a fraction of the works created for this series, from traditional canvas paintings, works on paper and found objects. The influence of sacred text on this exhibition is evident in the scorched paper and incorporation of writings in Aramaic, Arabic, and Hebrew.

This exhibition is a thought provoking combination of history, veneration, and love of color. Compassion will offer Muslims, Christians and Jews, and all those with an interest in religious art, a fresh insight into this essential aspect of humanity.

Sponsored in part by Euphoric Coaching, Who’s On First Gourmet Deli, the State of Florida , Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
