Three well-known Latter-day Saint contemporary artists will participate in a panel discussion at the Church History Museum as part of the 2014 Evenings at the Museum series on Thursday, June 26, at 7:00 p.m. Brian Kershisnik, Lee Udall Bennion, and Kathleen Peterson, currently featured in the museum’s exhibition Practicing Charity: Everyday Daughters of God, will be the featured panelists.

Curator Laura Allred-Hurtado will moderate the discussion, which will take place in the Practicing Charity gallery, where the artists will be able to answer questions while simultaneously referring to their works on display.  The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are recommended. For reservations call 801-240-9573 beginning Thursday, June 5, 2014. Free event parking will be available at 119 North West Temple.

In the Practicing Charity exhibit, Kershisnik, Bennion, and Peterson show ennobled yet everyday women who are faithful, believing individuals aware of their spiritual heritage as daughters of God. “These paintings depict the divine nature of women while simultaneously celebrating the importance of their everyday lives,” said Allred-Hurtado. As moderator of the discussion and exhibition curator, Allred-Hurtado will ask the artists questions about these works of art and how they as Latter-day Saints express their faith and beliefs through art.
