New in the online art gallery: Chris Cassell

Our online gallery for February and March showcases the photographs of UUCPA member Chris Cassell in four themes: “humanist” photography; March, Rally, and Resist; Natural Abstractions and Human-Made Abstractions; and “Planetarily Enhanced” Landscapes.

Chris is a contributor to Pro Bono Photo, a clearinghouse founded by Jack Owicki that matches worthy organizations (devoted to community service, social justice, and/or environmental advocacy) that need photographic or videographic services to volunteer photographers and videographers who wish to donate their time and expertise. When not taking photographs, Chris works in tech, with a special passion for the study and exploration of space (for example, he worked on a proposal to construct the James Webb Space Telescope). He grew up UU in Maryland, and also has a long involvement in the Ethical Culture Society. At UUCPA, he is a member of the Action Council, can often be found on the Saturday Work Day crew, and has recently led the Adult Religious Education program, “Tech Billionaires vs. the People’s Needs and Rights.”

For many years, UUCPA’s Main Hall lobby has been a gallery for community artists from within and outside the congregation. Your suggestions for artists, including yourself, are welcome: e-mail Amy Morgenstern,
