So, I came across these words on the blog of local artist J Nobel:
“i’m convinced that visual art has a place in contemporary church circles apart from setpiece and backdrop, visual reference at best. i’m convinced that there is a more prominent place for visual art in the corporate body. i’m convinced that art can include, can gather together, can teach, can connect, etc. art is made in community, grows from community, is supported by community, and thus should serve community.” read more here
J’ has a lot of great ideas…and great paintings! That’s why I think we should swarm the guy at his gallery opening Friday June 1, 7pm at Con Brio Studios. His show is called “Transitions”. In addition to J’s original works there will be live music, good food, and the potential for some very interesting conversations. Sounds like our kind of thing eh?
Here’s the poster – hope to see you there. And don’t forget to check the poasis site for more details.
