"Currents: The Reverend Howard Finster"
August 7 - September 22 1982
"The visionary work of Reverend Howard Finster centers on a singular and powerful subject - the Apocalypse - and bears a message about last things: the paradox of our possible salvation or ultimate destruction by technology, and the coming millennium in the atomic age. Each object represents what the artist has seen in a vision. What makes the work so compelling is that it both accommodates and moves beyond a personal vision to be concerned with the disposition of humanity facing the world - our efforts to come to know it and to come to grips with it."
