“Human” by Jo Fitsell, one of the pieces featured in the “Community Healing” exhibit.
First Church’s Arts for the Soul Committee, in partnership with the NoBo Art District, are excited to invite you to a First Friday reception to celebrate the opening of the latest art show in our sanctuary gallery, Community Healing. The reception will be held outside on the church patio; the exhibit is inside the building in the sanctuary gallery. When enjoying the art inside, masks will be 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.

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.

Join us on Friday, September 3, for a First Fridays reception to enjoy the art and some light refreshments; there is no admission charge. As the church building moves toward re-opening fully opening in mid-September, there will also be weekday and Sunday mornings times when you can stop in to see the exhibit…bookmark this page, and check back soon for updates.
