Portrait of the Reverend Greg Lisby by Travis Simpkins. All Saints Church. Worcester, MA

The Reverend Greg Lisby. by Travis Simpkins. All Saints Church. Worcester, MA

     My portrait of the Reverend Greg Lisby recently arrived at it's new home… I'm truly honored to have a piece of my artwork in the collection of All Saints Church, a sacred building rich in connections with art history and the only local church to have once held a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance… In 1977, Andrea del Sarto's now-famous 1517 painting of "Saint John the Baptist" was re-discovered at All Saints Church by my friend, Jim Welu (who was a Worcester Art Museum curator at the time). Designed by Stephen Earle in 1877, the All Saints Church building is a work of art in and of itself… a wonderful and soaring example of Gothic Revival architecture right in downtown Worcester. Among it's many artistic attributes, the building displays the "Worcester Stones", which are 13th Century medieval ornamental blocks donated by the Cathedral in Worcester, England. All Saints Church also has a very active and accomplished Music/Choir program as well.
