"Life in Full Bloom"
January 13 - February 26, 2017
Kristina Contemporary Art
An exhibition focused on a spirit of hope for women diagnosed with breast cancer. Accompanied by Bible verses, a series of sculptures of women's torsos follows the journey from wholeness through adversity to restoration of health. As the disease manifests itself, the sculptures break apart. As healing begins, the torsos show the recovery as they progress to whole golden forms. The impact of the hard welded metal surface in contrast to the soft human tissue it represents is stunning.

The Permanent Collection consists of a number of original works of art and artifacts owned by the church. Many are displayed in various rooms and hallways of the church.
Gallery Committee responsibilities include inventory, appraisals, conservation and display of the works. We need and welcome volunteers interested in learning the "art" of handling art.
