We try to have some kind of gathering each month, usually one of these:
8 Minutes Max [8MM]
A night for performers and writers to share in an intimate and safe context, and to receive audience feedback. To participate, submit the 8MM sign up form and show up at 6:30. You have 8 minutes to show us what ya got! Written feedback forms with clear guidelines are available for you to pass out to the audience in general, or to specific people, if you are interested in getting the feedback. Email Kevin Daniel about event details and specifics.
Often a potluck, sometimes a reception, anyone is invited to come! Half the time is just munching and visiting, the other half we usually hear from one or two artists sharing about their work, or have some other low-key programming to feed our souls. Contact Kevin Daniel for details.
Visual Art Exhibits
Our Exhibits change roughly with the church seasons: Advent-Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, Fall ("Ordinary Time"). Open calls will be announced and include a prospectus describing the theme. Contact Tildon Humprey for details.
FEAST - our community art magazine
Everyone is welcome to contribute written or visual responses to the Sunday sermons, current or past exhibits in the gallery, teachings in the various ministries , etc. Please submit your responses to Kevin Daniel for upcoming publications.
