“...For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.”  Hamlet" Act III Scene 1
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face-to-face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)

This exhibit has been in the works since 2010. Now, think back to where you were six years ago—and whether that feels like a long, long time, or just moments ago—your mind will mark the unexpected twists and turns of your life’s journey through the recent years. Now, consider what may come tomorrow. What if you knew you were going to die? What would be the one thing you would want to leave with the world? How would you want to be remembered?

Think of this gallery space as a memorial space, walk around and take in the images that others leave for us. These artists’ works give us an insider's view into what holds value for them. While most are still living, the record of their journey speaks of faith and trust, of grief and hope, of despair and healing, of failure and redemption, of lessons and losses, of warnings and vindication. They address the deeply human questions we can’t help asking, and encourage us to ponder the infinite, even though we know these answers will remain veiled until viewed from above.

Please visit many times, and take your time.  
Consider the things that you would wish to be remembered for.
What might be included in your epitaph?

We are exceptionally grateful to all 55 artists for joining us in this long awaited exhibition. To the numerous supporters of Seeds Fine Art Exhibits and our generous financial donors that help to make our work possible - we are extremely grateful for you. Returning to exhibit at BIOLA is such a joy and we are grateful to Jeff Rau Gallery Director, all the members of BIOLA Art department and to this lovely library gallery staff, volunteers and helpers for inviting us to share your space.  
Thank you so very much.

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7 NIV
