ARTS COUNCIL MÉLANGE

Who is the Arts Council? Beatitudes has always had a rich and robust appreciation for the Arts. From gatherings at local museums and art galleries to providing gallery space for local artists, the Arts Council makes God’s love real for our community in tangible and visual ways. Our committee has resumed meeting in-person monthly. Please join us on Sunday, April 24, following worship service at 11:30 am in Room 9. All are welcome!


NEW WORSHIP CENTER ART EXHIBITION FEATURING NICOLETTE NELSON & JOHN GUAGLIANO

Make plans to stop by the foyer of the Worship Center this Sunday, May 8, immediately following our service of worship to take a look at the latest exhibition of the Beatitudes Arts Council. This exhibition is a combination of work by local artists, Nicolette Nelson and John Guagliano. 
The works explore the central theme of the cross as the principle symbol of the Christian religion. The weight of the each cross is juxtaposed with that of the plants, recalling Jesus Christ’s Crucifixation and the redeeming and live-giving benefits of his passion and death. Each cross is handmade using wood and metal from recycled materials. Some are embellished with crystals, stones and other materials of interest and color. Drawing on her interests in art history and color theory, Nicolotte’s organic and natural works contrast the rudimentary yet determined metal works of John, emblematic of our Christian struggle to balance the traditional with the new.  

To purchase a work, please contact Beatitudes Arts Council member, Marcia Nix, at 602-274-8992. Thirty percent of the sale price helps to fund art projects at Church of the Beatitudes.
