What does beauty have to do with faith? Everything!

In collaboration with community partners and local artists, Sanctuary hosts a monthly gallery installation that invites attendees to discover the shared human condition through the experience and inspiration of beauty.

These works of art not only transform our worship space each month, but they transform us as well.

Scroll down for some of our recent artists. Better yet, come and experience it for yourself!

Are you an Artist interested in showing at the Gallery @ Sanctuary? See our Artist Agreement and contact the office.

This Month’s Artist is still creating!  Check back later for details about the artist and art being installed for this month’s ARTChurch!

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.
