UTAH---A new art show opening next week in Rexburg will feature paintings of angels and heavenly messengers from the Bible. J. Kirk Richards, of Woodland Hills, Utah, has been working on the show for the past year and is including many of his newest paintings. The show will open Sept. 16 and run through Oct. 13 in the Jacob Spori Art Gallery at Brigham Young University-Idaho. He describes his religious artwork as a “modern abstracted reinterpretation of classical themes.” He added, “I don’t think people should take my images as literal and the way it looked.” [link]
