Market Square Art Gallery

As part of our Arts on the Square Initiative and Market Square's ministry to support the arts, we host gallery showings of 2-D art created by members and select local artists.   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 12noon-1:30.  Church members and the public are invited to attend. 

 

To increase our support we have added an element to the reception called "Artist for the Day."   The Artist for the Day is an artist who works in a medium or creates a craft that cannot be displayed on a wall but can be displayed for the duration of the reception. 

 

Artists will introduce themselves and be present at the reception to answer questions and share their works.

 

Come and meet the artists, support the arts, relax, mingle, purchase art (if it is for sale), and admire the beauty of the creations.  

 

The art can be viewed on Sundays for the duration of the show before and after church.   For a private viewing during the week, you must call the church to make an appointment with our volunteer docent.  Currently, Thursday mornings are designated but may change depending on coverage.  Please call Nancy Sheets in the church office to schedule. 

If you are interested in being considered for being one of our artists or artist for the day, contact Lori Sweet, the MSPC Art Gallery coordinator, at lorisweetstudios@gmail.com for an artist application.
