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.

Epiphany’s Art Ministry

welcomes for the month of March the work of James E. Wright

In James’s own words
My love for art began with comics at a very young age. My attention was not grabbed for what would be the ‘norm’ of reading the comic books, it was the vivid colors on the covers that captivated me.  I would spend hours drawing various comic characters and remember having a feeling of happiness and completeness from the vivid colors of my pictures. The more crayons I used in the box, the more satisfied I felt. 

I strive to create works that speak to the beauty that exists in colors. I enjoy using acrylics to accentuate color blending and bold lines in my abstract paintings. I want to take the viewer’s eyes on a journey throughout my work. I have a passion for creating designs that appear to have no beginning and no end. My most recent venture with art-infused home décor is satisfying my love for what I like to refer to as functional art. Using various vintage finds in addition to custom build decor, I create products with a goal of providing physical and visual artistic stimulation to viewers. I am having great enjoyment creating these specialized and unique works that are exempt from the infamous reminder…’Don’t touch the art’.
