Despite a rainy evening, the First Pres Gallery hosted 707 visitors September 21, 2012, for the Fort Wayne Museum of Art Trolley Tour. California photographer Kurt Lawson was present for the exhibition of his work..
The Art Gallery serves also as the lobby for our theater. Each year six to eight new exhibitions are scheduled to coincide with theater productions. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm, Sundays 8:30am-1:00pm, and during all theater performances. Easiest access to the Gallery is through the west entrance to the church.
