Art Portraits Display with Reception

Entitled “selfie,” the exhibit features people’s portraits taken by Scorza after he talked with them about their relationships with the church and with God. The photos are Scroza’s interpretation of their answers and the conversations that followed—a visual representation, or selfie, of the inward self-reflection shared by each person.

The Te Paske Gallery is located in Northwestern’s Korver Visual Arts Center along Highway 10 in Orange City. Gallery hours are 8 a-m to midnight Monday through Saturday and 1 p-m to midnight Sunday.
