Westminster Gallery Reception: Photographs by John Kaul

February 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Westminster Gallery will hold a closing reception in celebration of its most recent exhibition, which features photographs by John Kaul on Thursday, February 8 from 5:30-7:30pm.

Heroes in Our Time highlights exemplars of moral, physical, and political courage. Kaul states, “I believe that it is important that we focus on these qualities, especially going into the next presidential election.” These 40 portraits include former Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Rep. Liz Cheney, Anita Hill, Jane Fonda, Ross Wilson (last Ambassador to Afghanistan), Josie Johnson, explorers Will Steger and Ann Bancroft, Olympic gold medalist Jessie Diggins, Sharon Day, Grant Merritt, and many more.

The exhibition also includes 17 portraits of Indigenous Water Protectors. Kaul participated in a Line 3 protest in Park Rapids. Jane Fonda was there, but the indigenous grandmothers who came to peacefully protest the construction of an oil pipeline captured his attention. He decided to create portraits honoring these indigenous women. Each portrait is accompanied by a brief biographical sketch that explains who the water warriors are, what motivates their involvement in protecting water, and something about their lives.
