Greene, 84, started painting seriously after his retirement which freed him to explore 2 of his passions: painting and hiking. Through watercolor he found the perfect medium to portray what he found in Oregon: sunlight, shadow, rich greens and sweeping vistas. Come and see the art and meet the artist in the Sanctuary after the second service. Please note: This show has been extended for another month with new pieces hung for the month of May. Please call the office at 503/246-3351 to make sure that someone will be here when you plan to visit.

Zimbabwe Artists Project (ZAP) is a non-profit organization, based in Portland, working
exclusively with artists, mostly women, from Weya, a rural area in eastern Zimbabwe. Founded
at the request of women artists, ZAP's goal is to help the artists become more economically selfsufficient.
Through the sale of their art, education, trainings, health care assistance and special
projects, ZAP supports their artistry and accomplishments.
ZAP’s complementary goal is to communicate with Americans about Zimbabwe's history and
culture, as well as about the artists’ lives. In the United States, ZAP help our communities to
see common humanity across boundaries of culture and privilege. We encourage our friends
and customers to recognize ways in which we can use our own privilege to enhance the dignity
and self-respect of others, including the artists of Weya.
Zimbabwe Artists Project strives for a genuine partnership with the women of Weya. Our
approach is based on the belief that self-respect comes through people's own
accomplishments. Our goal is to foster self-respect and self-reliance through collaborative
