‘Reflections of Christ’ on permanent display thanks to physicians

January 28, 2011

In February 2010, Mark Mabry’s “Reflections of Christ” Fine Art Photography exhibit was on temporary public display in St. Mary’s Saccomanno Education Center. Several hundred people viewed and enjoyed the photographs depicting scenes from Christ’s life. Now, thanks to the generosity of the physicians of St. Mary’s Medical Staff, the exhibit will find a permanent home in the hospital.

“We were thrilled when Dr. James Gebhard approached us with support to purchase 25 of the photographs for permanent display here,” says Carmen Moyer, associate director, St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation. Medical staff members donated additional funds to purchase and install the photo series.

The exhibit will open Saturday, January 29, and is accessible from the Monument Zone, first floor, off the surgery waiting area. “The corridor is quiet, with doors on each end. The long expanse seemed like a perfect place for employees and visitors to spend a few moments enjoying these beautiful portrayals of Christ,” Moyer says. “We think it’s a perfect addition to our healing environment.”

“The photographs were created as a single body of work. I wanted brief snapshots of the more intense moments of the Savior’s life, but they were meant to be viewed together and to give the viewer more than just a moment to consider the life of Jesus.”
