At St. Philip Church, we believe the “sacred” includes all of life and that art is a means of comprehending that sacredness. The art we display may or may not be specifically religious; it is a sincere response to life and our experience of being human.
We display art in the stairwell connecting the sanctuary and the downstairs hall, an area with lots of wall space, a high ceiling and lots of light. In the past, we have been privileged to display the works of emerging and experimental artists from the community. Currently, we are focusing on showing the works of the many talented members of our church community.
During May 2019, the Stairwell Gallery will feature the quilts and paintings of Shannon Carmichael, a member of the congregation and our terrific Children's Ministry Worker.
