In 2008, Tom saw twenty Robert Shetterly portraitsamericanswhotellthetruth.org. The paintings portrayed Americans from Sojourner Truth to Martin Luther King. All spoke loudly for justice, peace, and truth.
He felt that peace happens for reasons beyond good intentions and wanted to look closely at thinkers and doers who either cultivated the conditions for peace, or, sometimes, stood as exemplars of what not to do.
He write “Faces of Wisdom” for Duluth’s Zenith City Weekly Zenith City News. Each column is accompanied by a portrait drawings. Some of those — and a few other pictures — are included in this display.
His drawings will be in the windows until mid March. Do come by.
