In the ‘dead of winter’ Eric Smith, photographer – will be with us to share the breathtaking ‘personality’ of some of God’s most amazing creatures. Join us for:
- BYOB Gallery Reception and Reflections with the artist – Friday, Feb 09, 7 pm.
- ARTChurch with the artist – Sunday, Feb 18, 10 am.
From the Artist: “The photos in this collection are meant to draw you into the natural world of New England, give you a glimpse into the lives of the wild animals that live there. An amazing variety of animals surround us; these photos will introduce you to many of them.
One of my passions is telling stories through my pictures. I love capturing that magic moment that expresses the animals’ character and transports you into their world. When I’m out in nature and I see these creatures, it revitalizes me; when I share my pictures I invite others into my experience.
I hope my photos bring the viewer into the scene and closer to these animals, to share in my joy of discovery. May you be as inspired as I am by these creatures – and may they appreciate them and love them as much as I do.”
Participants will be guided with clear instruction in gentle yoga-based exercise and breath focused meditation, using chairs for comfort and support. Emphasis will be given on cultivating relaxation and concentration, as well as maximizing circulation, joint mobility, immunity and bone strength. No previous experience with yoga is required.

About ARTChurch: Inspired by the rich spirituality and deep themes inherent in art, ARTChurch looks at scripture and liturgy through the lens of the art installed in the Gallery at Sanctuary UCC. On the second Sunday of each month, we experience the Holy—and the holy in each other—through the images, colors, themes and creative energies of the installation, the artist’s perspective and that which is seen by the observer.
