Current Exihibition: This is My Story, This is My Song: Art for Lent and Easter

We are happy to welcome visitors to our current show in the parish hall, “This is My Story, This is My Song: Art for Lent and Easter.”  It features work by Gail Adams, Joe Adams, Susan Alexander, Kelly Best Bourgeois, Elizabeth Brown, Jackie Campbell, Laura Everhart, Rogers Hardy, Roger Hutchison, Martha Inskeep, Judith Lutkus, Eric Wagoner, and Wendy Wight. The gallery is open during Palmer’s office hours, Monday through Thursday, 9:00-5:00 PM, Fridays, 9:00-3:00 PM, and Sundays 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM.  This show opened on February 11 and continues until May 12.

Palmer's Visual Arts Council organizes four art exhibitions each year in the Palmer Parish Hall Gallery. The exhibitions follow the liturgical year and are organized around a theme appropriate to each season. Our mission through these exhibitions is to support and encourage beginning and professional artists, foster the creative call, engage arts and artists in the spiritual life of the church, and provide a suitable and refreshed gallery for the parish hall.

Looking ahead, the deadlines to submit art for the remaining shows in 2024 are April 29 for Pentecost; September 9, All Saints; and November 4, Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany.  Thanks for understanding that these are firm deadlines. 

Artists in two-dimensional media are invited to submit for consideration up to three entries no later than the above dates.   Selection for the show includes considerations of space availability and coordination with the theme of the show. When you select your submissions, please keep in mind that Palmer’s parish hall is the crossroads of our community, a space shared by parishioners and guests of all ages.  Image content should be appropriate for a spiritual space.   All pieces must be wired, ready to hang, and weigh no more than 25 pounds. We also encourage you to frame your piece in a way that does not require glass, such as with acrylics or inkjet printing on canvas.

To submit entries, send the following information by email to both Susan Alexander, , and Jackie Campbell, by the deadline:

  1. jpeg image

  3. dimensions
  4. medium
  5. price, if for sale
