The Initated Eye

I had the opportunity to see the traveling exhibition, The Initated Eye, at the Grand Lodge of California.

Journey into Light, Peter WaddellIt is a series of paintings by Peter Waddell, done in the Fifties, chronicling Masonic influence on the architecture of the nation’s capital. Some of the characters are a little stiff, but many of the paintings have very vivid lighting, the perspectives are good, and the pictures include minute details that will interest masons and history buffs. The exhibition is well presented, and we were shown around by curator Adam Kendall, which enriched the whole experience. The hall also exhibits some relevant effects from California’s own museum.

The exhibition also exists as an online gallery, but as always the actual oil on canvas is a completely different thing from a digital reproduction.
