Running Water Portrait

Written by Megan Carson

Don't miss out on an extraordinary opportunity to meet Elizabeth Thayer, the incredible portrait artist behind the paintings done of our friends seeking refuge. She has her work currently on display at the Covey Center in Provo, Utah (on Center Street).

THIS FRIDAY, August 3rd from 6-9pm, Liz will be greeting exhibit-goers at a reception for her exhibit. You won't want to miss this exhibit - it's soul-stirring and powerful! And, to meet Liz in person, to hear her experiences behind the paintings makes them really come to life.

I had the privilege of meeting Liz this week, as she walked with me through the stories of the courageous subjects of her paintings. In an intimate setting like that, these beautiful people became so much more than refugees. It was clear that she was telling me about her friends.

You also don't want to miss an interview she had with Julie Rose on BYU Radio as they walked around the exhibit together! Liz knows the people and their stories, and her personal connections with them bring them as much to life as her paintbrush.

Why celebrate World Refugee Day?

To me, the label “refugee” is a badge of honor. I invite you to honor and celebrate refugees and welcomers with me this month and to meet some of these heroes at TSOS's Virtual World Refugee Day event on 17 June.
