Acts of Faith is an exhibition drawn from the local collection of Will and Cheryl Sutton, celebrating spiritual experience through the eyes of notable 20th and 21st Century African American artists. Faith, and the tenacity to act upon it, is a central theme among the artworks. Engage with moving works by the likes of Benny Andrews, Willie Birch, Elizabeth Catlett, and more, and explore different interpretations and applications of faith through a variety of media.

Collectors Will and Cheryl Sutton were inspired to collect and exhibit artwork by the words of Proverbs 24:3, "Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches." It is their hope that sharing their collection with others will foster understanding and wisdom in our community and beyond.

The Gallery by Origin Bank operates through a partnership with Origin Bank, The Monroe Regional Airport, and the Masur Museum of Art. Exhibitions highlight artists and collectors from Northeast Louisiana. Come and see all that is happening at the Monroe Regional Airport!
