Religious Vestments

On two separate occasions, Cleve Gray was commissioned to design religious vestments for Christian church services.  In 1972, at the request of Haig Nargesian of the Episcopalian Church in Washington, Ct. (above), he designed Ordinary vestments to be worn throughout the entire liturgical year.  In 1978, at the request of the Episcopalian Church of Farmington, Ct. (below), he designed vestments for the four principal liturgical seasons.

"The Farmington, Ct. Episcopal Church had a group of wonderful women who volunteered to sew the vestments. I bought the materials in New York City and gave them my painted cartoons, which they reproduced perfectly."   -C.G. 2000
