Nature of Healing

May 28 - June 26

Jennifer Williams and Chris Moench invite us to step into their world, as they present their interpretation of hope and healing.


Jennifer's richly textured surfaces and atmospheric layers capture nature in a state of change and reference the Pacific Northwest, where sky and water are constantly moving. Her work focuses on nature’s power to renew itself, and also to renew us.

Chris’s ceramic prayer wheels are moving sanctuaries for the stories of our lives. The vessels can be filled with written memories, hopes and blessings. Through these contributions the vessels become a tangible symbol of the connections that join us to one-another and to the natural world. Finding inspiration in the pacific northwest and the Earth’s natural cycles, his sculptures invite interaction and reflection.
