Art Ministry

The Art Ministry is about providing emerging artists a venue to showcase their work through monthly exhibits in our gallery. Over the years, we have exhibited many parishioners work including painting, photography and mixed media, as well as work by many other local artists. God’s bounty of creation is shared through these diverse and changing exhibits that also include art from Emmaus House and Holy Comforter, art related to the church calendar and visual supports for Adult Education programs. In the case of diocesan groups, they benefit by receiving 100% of any sales. By exhibiting their creative work, other artists receive more exposure and opportunity for sales. Our parish benefits by having interesting work that enhances our space and by retaining 25% of any sales.

The work of the ministry includes: finding and scheduling the artists, installing their work in our gallery, introducing the artist through articles in The Epiphany Star, and accounting of sales. At the end of each calendar year, annual profits are distributed toward needs (mostly with a visual component) in the parish as determined by the committee and the Rector. In the past Art Ministry profits have gone to Vacation Bible School, Outreach, new vestments for our clergy and a wireless microphone system for the church.

Epiphany’s Art Ministry

welcomes photography by Deborah Monroy for October 2018


In Deborah’s own words:

I am grateful to have always felt welcome at Epiphany, beginning with an introduction to the Church years ago from my good friend Arlen Gray.

Making pictures with light has enchanted me since I was 5 and began working with my first camera—a small plastic box full of light sensitive paper. Actually you took the paper out of the box. Placed it on the sidewalk with a key or leaf on top of it. Then when inside and out of the light an image would appear.

I love color photographs since moving from Salt Lake City to Atlanta, but for those 15 years of black and white photography—each time I hung up a roll of developed film and saw actual images appear—I was astonished at the light’s creation.
