UU Gallery Presents...Precious Life: Photography by Jeff Percy

An exhibit with a social justice message.

Gallery Hours: M.W.Th. 1-4PM & During 10 AM Sunday Service & Coffee Hour - On display until 3/31/24

Jeff, a Unitarian, has worked for eight years with the Pan African Rural Health and Social Services documenting the people and circumstances of poverty. During four years, he has focused on a poor, struggling hospital in a small village called Fallay Wuljah that depends on donated equipment, supplies, medicine and medical volunteers. This situation determines the quality and extent of services. On his recent trip, a room for emergency services was dedicated.

Jeff says, “One way of viewing these photos is the devastation and limitations created by the lack of supplies and equipment. That is true. But I prefer to view them as an expression of extraordinary hope provided in a desperately poor country by this hospital and the caring staff. Jeff is one of the founders of a Milwaukee non-profit called “For Good Photography,” whose focus is on third world countries as well as marginalized communities in our own country. This is their fourth exhibition at UUFDC.

Since 2008, the UUFDC Art Gallery has hosted the work of visual artists from Door County and the region, with exhibits alternating every two months. The brilliant art pieces grace the Fellowship’s Gathering Room, where our Sunday coffee hour is held. The vibrant gallery is volunteer led.
