Architect E. Fay Jones designed Thorncrown Chapel, a wooden structure forty-eight feet high with 6,000 square feet of glass. Completed July 10, 1980, Eureka Springs, Arkansas
This is one of those spaces where the separation that is often created by architecture goes away. Being in this environment gives one the feeling of a union between the outside and inside. The vertical feature of the narrow columns creates a visual connection to the trunks of the trees which come up within feet of the glass walls.
I find that the pattern and relationship between nature and the architecture creates a visual tableau that becomes art.
This image will be shown on Saturday, June 30, 2018, with other prints exploring the concept of “Art Within Architecture”.
