For anyone well-versed in biblical history, stories such as David slaying Goliath, Abraham’s sacrifice of his son Isaac, and Jesus washing his disciples’ feet conjure familiar imagery. But those and other well-known passages take on unique visual perspectives in a Gardner-Webb University exhibit by North Carolina artist Don Sawyer Jr. Sawyer portrays Bible characters from different vantage points in almost a dozen acrylic pieces that comprise his “Wash Me All Over” show, which is now on display in GWU’s Tucker Gallery through Nov. 4.
