As a former art instructor and Supervisor of Art (grades 1-12) for a large school district, Elaine Wilson received the Pennsylvania Art Educator of the Year award. She was among the founders of the Susquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg and started two academic schools in Moscow, Russia. Her high school recently honored her as Outstanding Alumna of the Year. She has served on or chaired numerous art-related, church, and community boards. 


Along with her watercolor painting, Wilson is the author of twenty-one books. Fifteen of them, under the umbrella title of “The Art of God's Message,” feature amazing details about a famous work of art and its artist. 


Wilson’s paintings have been exhibited in venues all across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Her current interests revolve around traveling, painting, writing, photography, and lecturing. She resides in New Cumberland. 


The church will pay for your parking in the adjacent Market Square Garage for the opening reception. Enter the church from the first level of the garage or use the Event Entrance on Second Street. Then take the elevator to Level 4 and follow the hallway to historic Geneva Hall (1880). 

If you have not been to a gallery opening yet, this is one not to miss! Louise Poorman will be playing the piano, and Joe and Ashley Robinson will be serving their artfully-arranged refreshments. You’ll also have a chance to speak with Elaine about her work and meet fellow art lovers. 


I hope you will join us this Sunday for beautiful art, live music, tasty food, and great fellowship! 



As part of our Arts on the Square Initiative and Market Square Church's ministry to support the arts, we host gallery showings of 2-D art created by members and select local artists in the Arts in the Square Gallery space.   Each exhibit is displayed for approximately two months.  With each exhibit, we have an opening artist reception that is held on a Sunday, following our church service, from 12:00 noon-1:30 p.m.  Church members and the public are invited to attend. 


If you are interested in having your artwork considered for exhibition, please contact Beth Hager, art gallery coordinator, at for an artist application or for more information about the gallery.
