Artists' Meeting Rescheduled At Grace Episcopal

Friday, February 14, 2014

Because of the weather situation this week, the meeting of artists originally scheduled for Wednesday at Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave., has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 19, at around 6:45 p.m. – as supper dwindles – in the Undercroft.

In case you missed the write-up in Grace Notes, this meeting is for everyone who believes that we are God’s worthy partners in the holy enterprise of self-expression and creativity;anyone who has felt or who wants to feel closer to God by losing his or herself in the flow of paint, prose or pottery clay.
Whatever your art form – from acrylics to Zumba – join with kindred spirits on Wednesday evening, February 12th at 6:00 (for supper and meeting) or 6:45 (for meeting only) to explore the re-invigoration Grace’s St. Catherine’s Guild.
 
St. Catherine of Bologna is the patron saint of the arts and artists and was the namesake for a collective of artsy types here at Grace some years ago. Truth is, Grace has always been known throughout the community as the “artistic” church; to wit – GracePlayers, Grace’s Summer Art Camp for Kids, and Grace’s commitment to showcasing local artists on our Undercroft and third floors walls.
 
Excitement is already bubbling for what a revitalized artists’ guild might do – ArtCamp for Adults, an Art Auction Fundraiser, discussion and support groups for nurturing the creative impulse. 
 
Bring your ideas and inspirations and be ready for a good meal, a good time and the opportunity to be a part of the creative synergy that’s sure to follow.
