ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Mike "Doc" Davis

Mike proudly spent 30 plus years in public education as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, assistant superintendent, and superintendent of Calhoun City Schools. He retired from his educational career in 2007 and now resides with his wife Jane and English Springers Emmie and Willow in Nicklesville, Georgia.

Doc was first inspired to work with wood at his father’s family woodshop where they built furniture. Doc began wood turning in 2007 after his education career and attended a class at Campbell Folk Art School.  Doc is a skillful craftsman creating unique wooden pens, bowls, cutting boards, wooden signs and much more. Folks like to call him “Doc” because he likes to work with artistic woods and turn them into spectacular pieces.  Most of the woods he uses are found pieces and native to Georgia.

ABOUT THE 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

  • 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.
