Final Art Exhibit


Lenten Art Exhibit
Celebrating 300 years of gifts and talents

 
Be sure to stop in the church library between now and Easter Sunday.  After weeks of adding art contributions, the Art Exhibit is complete.

Paul writing to the Romans noted:
For as one body, we have many parts and all do not have the same function.  All do not have the same gifts.

Likewise, we, though many, are one body of Christ, and individually members one of another,  having gifts that differ according to the grace given us.

What a perfect time to contemplate and celebrate our gifts, during Lent of our 300th year.

Contributing artists include: Bettie Appenzeller, Dorothy Bishoff, Don Blakey, George Dunn, Tony Estus, Beverly Everett, Pat Lohrmann, Harriet Myer, Eva Ritter, Sandy Rhodes, Ron Sherman, Betty Skinner, Barbara Stephens, George Williams, Jean Wright, and from outside of the congregation, a piece by Jan Crumpley and a commissioned piece by Jack Lewis are featured.

For information on all of the artists, please see Art Exhibit Artists.

For photos of some of the items on exhibit, please see Art Exhibit Photos.
