Flags of 9/11: A Commemorative Tribute

"Flags of 9/11: A Commemorative Tribute" is an introduction to a proposed longer photo documentary archive video with over 1000 photos that show the way flags of the United States were displayed throughout New York City immediately after 9/11 and during the weeks and months that followed. The photos reveal the heartfelt expressions of people ranging from the grand displays through the windows of the large stores, to the little-known mom and pop stores; from the elegant to the rustic on the sidewalks; many soon-to-be-forgotten, and never seen again. Each flag display reveals the unity, gratitude, heartfelt feelings within the creative diversity of who we are as Americans. These flag displays were awe-inspiring and expressed gratitude and showed how we came together once and shows that we can come together and go forward. For more information about Victoria's process please see the annotations in the VR Gallery. Contact Victoria at PepeLuminSonics.com

2021 Light and Hope: The Journey of Lent

Lent starts in the middle of winter and ends up on the cross. In between, there is the interplay of light and darkness, indoors and outdoors, outward expression, and inward meditation. There is also hope, but our hope is in Christ, and that hope seemed to be lost on what we call Good Friday. Created by Victoria Pepe, this Virtual Reality exhibit invites us to experience our own inner perceptions as we journey through this Holy Season. VR goggles are not required but do enhance the experience.

2020 Advent Art Show

Video created by Victoria Pepe

The season of Advent is celebrated for 4 weeks prior to Christmas and highlights the experience of waiting for the Christ child to be born again in our hearts, spirits, and our world. Feelings of expectation, anticipation, and hope abound. Yet some of us also experience depression and despair during what can be a bleak time of year.

“Advent – Winter Waiting” endeavors to show a full range of emotional expression in visual art and poetry which represents all that we sense while we wait for Christmas Day to arrive. Sometimes these feelings are characterized by animals or inanimate objects. The artists who are participating in this show offer us the opportunity to explore what it means to wait and to anticipate with hope what is to come. View the full list of artists' bios.
