“Something Holy to Say” Gregory Wilhelmi, Solo show, July 2019

Painting title: Nearer My God to Thee (Self Portrait, 1979), 35 x 35”, oil on canvas

In this exhibitionGregory Wilhelmi explores a world of spirituality obscured, faith smudged, and the struggle to walk again in light.

“My father, Catholic gone missing in the density of decades, 

stands up to the ambulatory with a prayer bulletin 

and stubs of charcoal.

As a boy he misunderstood the sin 

of smuggling crayons into church, 

little wax martyrs in his shirt pocket 

conserved the chest cavity’s tender vessels.

He is binding a sketchbook

saving up for a modest tin of pencils.

He wants to be ready

in case he has something holy to say.”

    (Excerpts from “Cathedral” by Juliet Wilhelmi, 2011)
