Arts on the Square is a series of musical and visual arts presented by local, national, and international artists and performers in the preeminent venue of historic Market Square Church. For details on each event throughout the season, please "Like" us at www.facebook.com/artsonthesquareMSPC.     SCROLL down to view our current schedule. 

 

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 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 12noon-1:30.  Church members and the public are invited to attend. 

 

To increase our support of artists, 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 and during our 3rd in the Burg events (learn more here about 3rd in the Burg http://thirdintheburg.org/

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, during our scheduled 3rd in the Burg events, and at times the artists may arrange which will be announced. 

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