Study for Abraham Lincoln: The Great Emancipator
by Dean Morrissey

In November 1864, President Lincoln was re-elected despite widespread war-weariness in the North. Sherman’s recent capture of Atlanta gave hope that the Civil War was near its end. The Great Emancipator nickname referred to Lincoln’s 1862 Emancipation Proclamation, a sweeping political move that freed slaves in territories not already under Union control.

Artist Dean Morrissey’s moving portrait captures the President at the close of the Civil War contemplating an unknown future for the United States. Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865, a mere five days after Robert E. Lee’s surrender to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. He died the next morning. The Great Emancipator, done with his earthly, practical duties, entered the realm of hero and legend.

Bridge to the Spirit World
by Mian Situ

The location of this new release by Mian Situ is Canyon de Chelly in northeastern Arizona. Today it is a Navajo Tribal Trust land and home to the preserved ruins of the early Anasazi and Navajo tribes.

“When I was in Canyon de Chelly in May last year,” says Situ, “I saw a beautiful rainbow after a storm. The Navajo people believe that the gods travel on the rainbow because it moves so rapidly. They also portray the rainbow as the bridge between the human world and the other side. Navajo people have lived in Canyon de Chelly for generations and are still living there today, herding sheep and cattle and farming the land.”
