Art at St. Mark’s

Hanging on the walls of the church and chapel is an exhibit of some of St. Mark’s own art collection, with pieces old and new. In the weeks up to Advent, icons, photographs, etchings, paintings, calligraphy and folk art are on display to enhance our worship space. The pieces have been hanging in (and will return to) other spaces around our building.  Take some time to examine and learn about some of the beautiful works we have access to every day. Be sure to notice the pieces in the chapel and in the altar space. New pieces have been donated to our collection since it was last shown in the church; some have been purchased and donated from recent shows, and others have been donated from private collections of parishioners. The art committee always welcomes donations of original art. We also need to reframe/restore some of our existing pieces, and monetary donations towards that effort are also very much appreciated.

If you would like to participate in the Visual Arts Committee at St. Mark’s, please contact the front desk or ceciliasmith@hotmail.com. The committee selects, promotes, and installs three to four art exhibits in the church every year.
