Visual arts is of the utmost importance in spiritual education and development as it attempts to illustrate and convey emerging epiphanies of Christianity in tangible form--Inspiring theological reflection & compassionate acts.
We work with themes of spiritual, theological, sociological, anthropological, psychological, and ecclesiastical significance that ignite artists and guests alike to reflect, participate, challenge, and act.
We feature art shows that are open (call for artists) and closed (working with specific artist or group). We also host spirituality of movement classes (also known as Yoga) frequently. We occasionally have drum circles, artist lectures and presentations, music circles. We also have hosted a storytelling conference, a poetry open mic, and an evening of original voices. We are continuing to explore and expand our vision to other creativity and ministerial arenas beyond 2D or 3D "art."
In our three and a half years here, we have hosted over 30 shows working with such organizations as Peoples' Resource Center, NAMI/Awakenings Project, JUSTDuPage, Wheaton College Photography, Morton Arboretum Artists' Guild, College of DuPage Print Makers, Franklin Middle School, Jericho Road, to name a few.
We are a ministry of Gary Church and maintain our existence by dedicated volunteers and donations.
