This talented group of local artists paint “En Plein Air” around Atlanta.

Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and

drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its’ changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”

Please enjoy reading each artist’s short bio and artist statement.

25% of all sales benefit Epiphany. Please sign up on the price sheet. Pay by QR code or check.

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.
