Photographs by Paul Vreeland at Brackley Beach Gallery

Until October 20
Brackley Beach Gallery

Portrait of Nick Chandler by Paul VreelandFifteen photographic portraits will be featured in an exhibition at the Brackley Beach Gallery to October 20.

Entitled One Common Purpose, the images are of people united in a vision of community-building. The portraits are accompanied by statements by the subjects who represent a diversity of faiths and backgrounds regarding their involvement in activities to build communities.

The exhibition is one of many celebrations taking place world-wide, and one of several taking place on the Island to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, founder of the Bahá’í Faith. The central message of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings is one of unity calling humanity to a recognition that each of us is a member of one family. He said, “It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.” Another of his teachings is that acts performed in the spirit of service to humanity are acts of worship—a theme of the exhibition.

One Common Purpose is an initiative of photographer, Paul Vreeland. The show will continue through October 20 with the gallery open from 12 to 5 pm.
