Notable Quotations

The artist's work in progress of modern Biblical illuminations with commentary includes over seven hundred pieces of art and commentary to date.

Lewis Manilow, former President of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, wrote of this work as,"..artistically and spiritually extraordinary. The quality is so high and the vision so strong that I find it an astounding achievement."

Christian author and theologian Dr. Martin E. Marty, Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago wrote of this work: "Anyone can do illustrations and anyone can have devotion, but to conceive of the wedding of these two as [Charlotte Hart] has in drawings and paintings, each of which has a surprising independence of the others and yet all of which are related because they are prismed through a single consciousness with a single intention, is quite a heroic venture."
