All Saints Gallery - 2019

PSALMS

  • Summer Community Show - 2019
  • Featuring artists, writers, and poets from the All Saints community.
  • Curated by Missy Wood

For our second-annual, Summer Community Art Show, we've chosen the Psalms, God's songbook, as our jumping off point for artistic reflection on God's Word. Full of faithful worship through poetry, revealing truth about God through rich metaphor, appealing to the full range of human senses, experiences, and emotions, and all of it created through a community of God's people, the Psalms provide, as beautifully put by our friend David Taylor, "a vision of a community of artists, of all kinds... who over a long period of time make art for God's sake and for the sake of the world... They do so in poetically rich, aesthetically intensive, and contextually meaningful ways. They do so in ways that both comfort and disturb, in faithfulness to the Word of God."

My prayer is that this show, comprised of work made by our community of artists and reflecting on particular Psalms, will, itself, embody this very vision of worship-through-art that we see in the Psalms. May our artists' faithfulness, expression, creative reflection of God's Word, and offering of their work for Him and the world, lead all of us to know, love, and serve God and neighbor more deeply and fully, in Christ.
