In the Gallery at GFC

“Structures of Vitality” by Stefania Urist

Stefania Urist is a Westport native now living in Vermont.  She likes to combine rigid building materials like glass or brick, with softer forms, in order to point out questionable opposites such a industry versus domesticity and construction versus organic growth.  In the Gallery currently are three-dimensional works in glass, metal and organic material.  Stop by for a closer look!  The show runs through January 19, 2018

The Gallery at GFC

The idea for a permanent gallery in the church building grew out of the outdoor pop-up art show that GFC hosted on the occasion of its 300th anniversary in June 2011. The show was so well received that parishoners asked for more. In response, gallery space was created inside the building, between the courtyard and parking lot entrance to the church. The Gallery at GFC hosted its first exhibition in January 2013. Since then the Gallery has been the site of shows in all kinds of media by both professional artists and talented amateurs, all of whom have some connection to Greens Farms Church. The Gallery also serves as a community gathering spot where visitors can deepen their connection to others and explore the spiritual meaning of the works.

Art and faith have a longer history together. Some people think the earliest known art images from the Lascaux caves represent spiritual beliefs as well as imagines from nature. Museums and cathedrals the world over are filled with masterpieces devoted to the divine.  Even when the subject isn’t religious, the process of creating all art is a spiritual endeavor, arising from some mysterious force within the artist that connects him or her to the mysterious power of creation itself. Now the artists of Green’s Farms Church share their journeys and works of art in celebration of this same spirit.

If you are an artist and would be interested in showing your work, or if you have an idea for a themed show, please contact Diane Parrish. We welcome your art and your presence.
