From an exhibiting Artist: "When my sister and I arrived Saturday afternoon, we heard organ music (Bach) being played in the chapel. When he finished playing that particular piece, he (the Parish Organist) graciously came with us down the hallway, unlocked the door and turned on the gallery lights for us. I was extremely impressed by the overall quality and hanging of the exhibit. We spent a good two hours there, taking some photographs and just soaking everything in. It remains an honor to be in the show and be surrounded by so much quality art and artists!"
--Robert Eustace, exhibiting artist
From a Gallery Committee member: "Wow! It always amazes me how powerful the artwork is when it is seen in person and/or when we get background history in conjunction... I am so humbled to be a part of this remarkable world as a Committee member and the impact it has had on my own life. Words are not enough."

Psalm 139:14 says, “I will praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this very well.”
How does your art celebrate the wonder or depict the fear and uncertainty of this life? All humans are wonderfully made, and equipped with the inner strength to overcome obstacles and express the joy of this life.

Make a work of art from your trash!
Take some things you would ordinarily throw away – plastic bottles or containers, glass, electronics, paper, cardboard… and make them into art! Show off your best work in this exhibit. We call upon our young people to create a piece of art using recycled materials as most or all of the work. No application necessary; simply drop off your work and the attached form on May 18 or 19. This is not a juried show. For this youth exhibit, we anticipate including all art that is presented.
2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. This feat of science, creativity, and bravery provided humans with the first view of earth while standing outside a spacecraft, evoking a sense of perspective and wonder about our fragile home, an island in the universe. How are we stewards of the earth? For this exhibit, we invite you to explore the earth, space travel, the universe - all that a moon landing and a sense of the earth and its strength and fragility bring to mind.
