FaithMarks Art Exhibit At Lindsay Street Hall

Thursday, March 7, 2013

An art display featuring photographs of spiritual tattoos, entitled FaithMarks, will debut Friday, March 22, from 6-8 p.m. at Lindsay Street Hall.  The exhibit is an initiative of St. Marks Church in North Chattanooga.

“FaithMarks is a unique blend of spirituality represented in the tattooed artwork of local residents and individual stories that accompany them,” states Anna Golladay, co-chair of the project.  “With the assistance of local tattoo studios and social media, we discovered some amazing tattoo artwork.  It is this kind of inter-denominational and inter-faith ministry that serve as a perfect reflection of our Northshore community.” 

Twenty-two oversized  photographs make up the collection—all shown in a gallery-style setting.  The backdrop for the photos was the 100-year old St. Marks campus.  Sweet T Studios provided the photography.   

The exhibit is free to the public, with music provided by Dave Webb of Tone Harm.  Refreshments will be provided as well, in addition to a photo booth by Just Shoot Me Photography.   

Additional information can found at www.ourfaithmarks.com. The website offers the opportunity for others to upload their own tattoo images, and many residents from the U.S. and around the world have already shared their artwork and stories.   

The exhibit will continue to be on display March 27-31 at St. Marks Methodist Church, on Mississippi Avenue in North Chattanooga.  In addition, portions of the art exhibit will be available for other locations at the show’s conclusion.  Contact Anna Golladay or Carl Greene at St. Marks for more information.

In 2015 Joe Kennedy, a career Marine, was told by a “woke” crowd of educators that he could no longer be an assistant high school football coach in Seattle, Washington. The problem was that he publicly knelt and prayed on the field’s 50-yard line after every game and there were some school administrators that felt he was an undue influence on non-religious students.
