Cat Ryan submits-

Realism in so many particulars, gestures, and glances is difficult to capture in any media. One of the impressive commissions Morgan Faulds Pike has been immersed in these last eight years, a special carved wooden altarpiece, is nearly complete. It’s a gentle, quiet stunner made up of a center panel and two side panels. Morgan created the reliquary, too.

St. Mary’s in Rockport is raising money for its installation. Follow this Crowdfunding link for more details. Donations can be sent directly to St. Mary’s and marked “Reredos”, Attn: Rev Karin E Wade, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 24 Broadway, Rockport, 01966

‘Reredos’ describes the freestanding art behind (and above) an altar.
