Julie Quinn Art Exhibit Opens January 4 At The Pine Rest Leep Art Gallery


Beginning Jan. 4, 2012, Pine Rest will display Julie Quinn’s newest exhibit “Unspoken.” The exhibit will be located in the Postma Center Leep Art Gallery at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, 300 68th Street, Grand Rapids.

Julie Quinn is an artist based in Grand Rapids. Art has played a central role in her life since her childhood in Tachikawa, Japan. Quinn’s work portrays spiritual reflections through an artistic language that is uniquely hers.

Quinn believes that authentic and lasting spiritual transformation in our world happens through the work of God’s Spirit. “As an artist of faith, I believe it is my calling not only to create work by the leading of His spirit, but also to use it as a vehicle by which to minister in His name to the people around me…thus, hopefully initiating healing and transformation in a hurting world,” says Quinn.

The exhibit will run Jan. 4 until April 3, 2012. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional times are available by appointment. There is no admission fee. For more information, please call 616/222-4530.
