Welcome to the First Presbyterian Art Gallery!
Please join us as we celebrate several new artists for the 2015-2016 season including an invitational exhibition of recycled, repurposed, reimagined art in April.
Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm, Sundays 9:30am-1:00pm, and during all theater performances.
Feel free to browse this beautiful artwork at your leisure. Contact the church for more information: 260-426-7421.
The closest entrance to the art gallery (handicap accessible) is on the west end of the building.
OUR MISSION: The Visual Arts Ministry is grounded in the belief that we are created in the image of God and that both the arts and religion are manifestations of the same creative spirit, deeply rooted in the human soul.
