Art Church is a once-a-month opportunity for artists and the general public to engage with one another. (We took a bit of a break over the winter months...) Each month, we will meet in the gallery from 12:00 – 2:00 pm. Our hosts will lead a short discussion, scheduled to start around 12:00 pm.
On Sunday, April 22nd, we’ll reconvene with Art Church hosted by local artist Susan Kristoferson and her husband Larry Kaputska.
Art Church is intended to be a casual, lively, relatively unstructured, come-as-you-are, come-and-go gathering, with opportunity – but no obligation – for participation and engagement. Coffee, tea and home-baked goodies will be served.
Why ‘church?’ you may well ask.
Good question. There are a few reasons.
We wanted this monthly event to represent a spirit of community, friendship, and a commonality; to open a conversation between our visitors and our artists; and to be a regular, welcoming, community-based happening to meet and converse with others who share a love for art, whether they create it themselves or not.
Lastly, perhaps most importantly, there wasn’t another word we could think of that better expresses the certainty that we need art to live fully, joyfully and meaningfully. Or that particular reverence for the artwork which speaks to your deepest self so profoundly that it touches your soul.
We will be open to the public from 10-6, as always! If you prefer to come just to shop for a gift, or float around in the gallery, please do.
