ArtShow

Sunderland Hall, our main worship space, is an ideal place for showing artwork. The large skylight and high ceilings enhance the room while the gallery space has its own lighting to allow the works to be shown to their best advantage.

We also have a smaller display area in our library, where art from our members is displayed for up to two months.

The artists who display their work in these spaces often offer some pieces for sale, with a small percentage of the price going to the congregation. Please contact the artist if you are interested in purchasing a work.

Artists interested in exhibiting their work in our Sunderland Hall gallery are invited to contact the Arts Committee chair by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Art in October: Susan L. Brown

Susan L. Brown

Susan L. Brown's photo-based mixed media works, complex and texturally rich, reflect the myriad sensations and meanings people encounter when experiencing a place and moment in time. Whether she finds herself in a farmers market, at the foot of a glacier, enjoying local graffiti or watching sea gulls, Susan explores how images and ideas can converge to create something familiar, yet unfamiliar.

Personal memories, cultural traditions, education and social history all contribute to the layers of significance that emerge. “If we are lucky, truly being in the world brings an abundance of understandings to our experience beyond the senses....a visual poetry.”.

Susan L. Brown is a native of Toronto, arts educator, entrepreneur and poet.

Please join us on Sunday, Oct. 7, from noon to 1 pm in Sunderland Hall, for the opening reception and artist talk.
