Legacy Maltwood (at Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

A free-standing installation of painted doors installed by Richard Motchman, BFA UVic. The paintings are meant to be an examination of the Western 20th century society compared to images derived from Renaissance altarpieces and the religious images they depict.

About the Artist: Richard Motchman is a Victoria based artist. He completed his BFA at the University of Victoria, and has had a number of successful solo and two-person exhibitions.

Holy Places, Holy Faces and Ritual Images, Sacred Object

July 15 – August 19, 1990

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

An exhibition of photographs by David Stewart, who spent 30 years photographing religious communities in Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, India, Japan and Nepal.

Complimenting the photographs is an exhibition of sacred paintings and objects from the permanent Maltwood Museum Collection which illustrate religious expression in the Far and Near East.

The 50 photographs, both black and white and colour prints, will comprise a broad retrospective of my photography dealing with religious expression (in these countries). The images will reflect the human similarities and cultural diversities of religious expression.
