First Church’s Arts for the Soul Committee, in partnership with the NoBo Art District, invite you to come and enjoy the latest art show in our sanctuary gallery, Community Healing.

There will be First Fridays open gallery/receptions on Friday, November 5, and Friday, December 3, from 6:00-9:00 pm on both evenings. Masks are required. If you don’t have a mask, we’ll be glad to provide you with one. There is no admission charge, and all are welcome.

The exhibit is also open during the following times through *Friday, December 24:

Wednesdays, 11:00-2:00 pm
Fridays, 5:00-8:00 pm
Sundays, 11:30-2:30 pm

*Please Note: Friday, December 24, is Christmas Eve, so worship services will be taking place at First Church on that evening. Service times are planned for 5:30 pm (outdoor family service), 7:00 pm (indoor service with the Chancel Choir), and 9:00 pm (indoor jazz service). If you’d like to see Community Healing that evening, we invite you to join us for a Christmas Eve service, and enjoy the artwork in the sanctuary before and/or after worship.

About Community Healing
Our community has absorbed global, national, and local tragedies both from this last year and a half, all the way back to September 11, 2001, and probably before then. How does a community engage in healing? One significant way is to turn to the arts. Artists know how to express what many are feeling. The power of visual art is a part of that because it allows personal reflection, and possibly conversation about how we experience these events and then move forward.

This exhibit features the work of 20 artists working in a variety of media including fiber art, pastel, collage, paintings, assemblage, and more.

QUESTIONS? Please email Arts for the Soul Co-Chair Barb Olson.
