“Between the Shadow and the Light” is a traveling exhibition comprised of art created by 21 Christian artists from the United States, Canada, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Rachel Hostetter Smith, professor of art history at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, and curator of the exhibit describes it as such, “The group includes roughly equal numbers of women and men and blacks and whites, and ranges in age from their twenties to their sixties, bringing in a truly diverse range of perspectives to the project.” This exhibition presents the artist as both piercing prophet and hopeful seer, and pushes viewers to consider the resonance of South Africa for North America and beyond.
