Arts Abloom – Celebrating Our Creative Gifts
During this year when we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the call of St. Ignatius to follow Christ and the 400th anniversary of his being declared a saint of the Church, we especially celebrate finding God in all things. We’ve planned an event to celebrate the gift of artistic creativity.
Arts Abloom, an exhibit and creative arts show featuring the array of creative gifts of our parishioners and their families, will be held in the parish hall on May 14th from 10-2. From poetry and painting to woodwork and needlework; stained glass and drawings, music makers and more, artists and makers will display their creations, some will have inventory that you can purchase, others may take special orders, still others will show their creation as inspiration to all of us.
Many of the exhibitors are graciously donating a piece of their work so that you can have a chance to take it home! There will be tickets for sale ($5 each) which you can place in the boxes of the items that particularly strike your fancy.
Are you a writer or painter? Crafter or carver? Potter or fiber artist? Musician? Share your gifts! If you’re new at your craft, be brave! Show us, inspire us. Thanks to Mary C. for sharing her watercolor of Mr. Cardinal with us!! This is another tangible way for you to connect with your parish community.
Reach out to the parish office for more details and to register for your display space. This is a free event, thanks to our early supporters.
