Come to First Church’s Sanctuary Art Gallery to enjoy Journeys and Pathways, the current exhibit in our Sanctuary Art Gallery!

Journeys are epic adventures in new and varied landscapes. Or journeys are the ways we travel through the interior landscapes of our lives. These artists offer us a variety of journeys, from a simple path in the forest that beckons you to explore, to artists exploring the creative art path they are passionate about, to journeys of people being led against their will, to the path that our country finds itself traveling now.

What journey is calling to you right now?

Journeys and Pathways is comprised of the work of 13 local artists who have contributed 33 pieces in total. The media represented include fiber, oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, digitally altered photography, and pinned collage.
