The John Wesley Fellows Meeting at Candler—- The Art of Theology

posted by Ben Witherington

AFTE 016.jpg

The John Wesley Fellows meeting this January was held in Atlanta at Candler School of Theology, and its Dean,  Dean Love is a collector of art for the seminary, with some 50 or so paintings now gracing the walls of their beautiful new seminary building.  The art of choice comes from a West coast artist influenced by Hispanic or Latin American art, named John August Swanson.  He has done a remarkable number of Biblical scenes, for instance above we have David and Goliath.
AFTE 025.jpg
Here we have Jacob’s  dream (above).
AFTE 008.jpg
Above is the disciples with the great catch of fish.

AFTE 012.jpg

Oops.  This is a sideways picture of the Good Samaritan.

AFTE 014.jpg

Here we have the raising of Lazarus.

AFTE 015.jpg

Here is St. Michael slaying the dragon.

AFTE 021.jpg

Here is a painting of scenes in stained glass in a cathedral.  There are many more of this ilk in Candler’s new building.

John August Swanson’s work is lovely and profound. I had the opportunity to meet Mr Swanson last fall and he is as wonderful as his art. If you folks at Candler have the chance to meet him- don’t miss the opportunity.
