ArtPrize Nine is soon to be upon us and St. Mark’s is pleased to be participating once again. The 2017 exhibition will have 16 indoor and 2 outdoor artists with work covering various aspects of the theme of The Landscape. Our artists come from all over the United States, Canada, and Denmark. Their work will range from sculpture to traditional oil painting and contemporary abstraction. There will even be a time-based piece where St. Mark’s lawn is the canvas and the grass seed the medium. If you are interested in a preview of our show, click here.
We will celebration with an artist reception on Friday, September 29 from 5:30-8:00pm. We anticipate several of the artists to be on hand for this event. St. Mark’s is also looking for parishioner volunteers to greet the crowds that come in increasing numbers each year. It is a wonderful opportunity for us as a Parish to provide a “St. Mark’s Welcome” and to showcase all that we are about here at St. Mark’s. If there is anyone who would like to participate, please contact Shawn Krueger, Debbie Weinrick or David Kidd and/or look for the sign up sheet to volunteer at the Welcome Desk in the Parish Hall.
