Winnipeg, MAN. — For the third year in a row, Mennonite Church Canada’s Annual Assembly featured an art exhibit. Heritage Centre Gallery curator and artist, Ray Dirks pulled the exhibit together with the help of Laura Eriksson of B.C.

Eriksson is a calligraphy artist who has contributed several pieces to the exhibit.  “The two pieces I am submitting hang at Peace Mennonite Church, as I lettered them for their 25th and 30th anniversary.

On Friday, Eriksson brought some of her personal Biblical-text-journals, her “calligraphic way of daily ‘listening to the Word', quite in keeping with the theme of the Assembly.”
