Anne Goetz: Pray to Love
Nov 3–Jan 17 | ORGAIN, CROUCH & BRUNER GALLERIES
Sponsored in part by Grand Illumination Radiant Sponsors B&V Inc.
What began as a trip to Annecy, France–where her aunt was a nun–has grown into a traveling
exhibition of inspired works for painter Anne Goetze. Pray to Love includes a dozen pieces with
captions written by nuns and a film by Nathan Collie. Goetze says of her story, “Through their lives
they have shown me, and the world, where true freedom really exists… it lies deep in the soul.
Freedom comes from within.”
