Art Ministry

The Art Ministry is about providing emerging artists a venue to showcase their work through monthly exhibits in our gallery. Over the years, we have exhibited many parishioners work including painting, photography and mixed media, as well as work by many other local artists. God’s bounty of creation is shared through these diverse and changing exhibits that also include art from Emmaus House and Holy Comforter, art related to the church calendar and visual supports for Adult Education programs. In the case of diocesan groups, they benefit by receiving 100% of any sales. By exhibiting their creative work, other artists receive more exposure and opportunity for sales. Our parish benefits by having interesting work that enhances our space and by retaining 25% of any sales.

The work of the ministry includes: finding and scheduling the artists, installing their work in our gallery, introducing the artist through articles in The Epiphany Star, and accounting of sales. At the end of each calendar year, annual profits are distributed toward needs (mostly with a visual component) in the parish as determined by the committee and the Rector. In the past Art Ministry profits have gone to Vacation Bible School, Outreach, new vestments for our clergy and a wireless microphone system for the church.

Artist Statement

“I consider myself a representational figurative painter: my work concerns the people, places and things I care about. In my practice, I undertake projects in drawing and painting with differing goals, of varying ambitions. Some large multi-figure canvases consume years. In my still life and landscape pictures, I exercise the power of observation and the play of light on color. From the complexity of nature, I abstract color, light, shadow, and form to interpret in paint what I see before me. On some occasions the challenge resembles a wild ride, on others, the process is pure delight, and in some moments, a sense of peace pervades every brushstroke. I hope that you enjoy the colors, the feelings, and the meaning that I find in painting and interpreting the everyday objects and places included in this exhibition of my work. I think of them as "small good things," to borrow the words of the late great writer Raymond Carver.”

Remember, Epiphany receives 25% of sales. To make a purchase, sign up on the list in the Gallery, fill out an envelope and put it with your check in the box on the round table. No cash please. Be sure to note the title and number of the art piece. All paid for items will be left in the office area at the end of the month.
