“The Night Visitors” invitational piece at 2015 Mepkin Abbey Creche Festival

The-Night-Visitors_7.5x10-McKenzie-3-225x300You are invited to a special exhibit of nativity sets from around the world featuring The Night Visitors, an original painting for the 2015 festival by Janet MacKenzie.  The Night Visitors is the invitational piece of this year’s Crèche Festival. Artist Janet McKenzie said that, in creating this painting she was influenced, in part, by the massacre that took place on June 17, 2015 at Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston.

The 2015 creche festival will be held from November 16-22 and November 27 through December 5.  Reservations can be made on the abbey’s website, mepkinabbey.org. Those without computer access can call the abbey’s creche voicemail 843.761.6580 to request a reservation.  Due to space and time limitations, pre-registration is required.  Tours begin at the Abbey Store.

The Mepkin Abbey is located at 1008 Mepkin Abbey Rd. in Moncks Corners, SC.  For additional information go to the abbey’s website noted above.
