Sandra Bowden, Reformation Altarpiece, 2017, encaustic with gold leaf.

This multi-panel grouping speaks with quiet reflection on Lucas Cranach the Elder’s Reformation Altarpiece in the City Church in Wittenberg, created in 1547. The distinct shape identifies this historic work and because of its luminous surface it invites the viewer to enjoy its radiance, while drawing on memory and imagination to recall the imagery that inspired the faithful.
The Reformation Altarpiece was given to CTSFW by the artist in October 2018.

Edward Riojas, Sower of the Seminary, 2012, oil on wood.

The artist depicts the ministry of Word and Sacrament by picturing Jesus at his baptism and the Last Supper, and by placing the resurrected Jesus as the sower in the famous Parable of the Sower. The inclusion of the seminary buildings in the backdrop of the center panel highlights this as the place where men are formed for this ministry.
The Sower of the Seminary triptych was commissioned as a gift by the graduating class of 2012.
