"Art Connections" is  an event   developed in 2008 to encourage members to share their artistic interests, get to know one another better, and to give thanks to God for the arts and crafts that have been fostered and honed.   "Art Connections" is an art exhibit designed to meet and greet the artists, enjoy fellowship, and display the variety of beauty God has gifted us with.   It was repeated with new artwork in 2010 and 2012.      






An Art Committee was formed in 2014 to explore additional ways to keep the connections between Art and beauty and God apparent and appreciated,  and to draw people together.

If you have wondered what this program is,

you will be excited to learn these details.
Art Connections is an exhibition of many kinds of art (and I do mean many!) created by the members of our congregation. The name of this event was chosen a few years ago to emphasize our connections to one another through our creator God. We create because He created us.
Our congregation is blessed to have many artistic members who share their God given talents at this event. Painters in many media, photographers, wood workers, quilters and other fiber artists, sculptors...the list could go on...are all examples of creative endeavors that have been exhibited in previous Art Connections.   It is important to note that this is an exhibit, and not a sale. It is open to all members and their families...children are certainly encouraged.
Our theme this year is ‘Nature is Art - Art is Nature’. Expressing our gratitude for all that God has created takes many forms and seeing it in nature is a connection we all feel.
So... if you have a project in progress, and have been thinking about getting back to it or if this article inspires you to start one, you are needed! Crafters, artists, all are encouraged to participate.
Art Connections will be held on Saturday, June 23rd from 4 to 7 pm.
And you might have guessed that volunteers are needed to make this a complete success. Set-up, refreshments, music, etc. are all part of the event.
Please call Linda Eckenbrecht at 216.346.3581 or speak to Joanna at church.  If you would like to enter the exhibit as an artist, please click here and complete the registration form and return to Joanna Pretz-Anderson.
