Holiday Art Show and “Sacred Sights”

Date(s) - 12/20/2015
12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Gallery at St. John's




THE ANNUAL HOLIDAY ART SHOW will feature fine art and fine art crafts by area artists. Among the original artworks presented in this show will be paintings, photography, jewelry, scratch-carved eggs, egg jewelry, wood crafts, holiday ornaments, gift baskets and more, with many items suitable for holiday gift-giving.

SACRED SIGHTS* showcases photographs of very old structures dating from 1060 AD to modern times. A church located above the Arctic Circle, with its colorful altar painting in Lapp-style art, stands in vivid contrast to a Norwegian Stave church from the 1100s which is 90% original. There is a baptismal font from the 1300s and a modern font in Iceland that resembles glacial ice. This variety of sacred sights evokes a sense of the “faith of our fathers” as well as our own present-day living faith.

*This exhibition is part of the Lehigh Valley Photography Month, part of the Olympus InVision Photo Festival™ presented by ArtsQuest.
