A Harvest of Attributes


fruit of the spirit

 

Coming this autumn

-a new visual art project that is a collaboration of The Art Junction and New Haven United Methodist Church.

A Harvest of Attributes: art that examines the fruit of the spirit.

The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a Christian life according to Paul in his Letter to the Galatians “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

  1. Love –Nancy Beckett
  2. Joy –James Easter
  3. Peace –Alec Casto
  4. Forbearance/patience -Kevin Casto
  5. Kindness –David Wolff
  6. Goodness –Cynde Spyker
  7. Faithfulness –Karen Wilson
  8. Gentleness –Lynda Stoneham
  9. Self-control –Anita Andrews

The Art Junction and New Haven United Methodist Church present an exhibit to examine the fruit that identifies a Christian through visual art.

This group exhibit of nine visual artists will examine and lead the viewer through a visual journey and communicate a message of Christian love and encouragement.  The exhibit will invite the community to examine the attributes of the Christian life that can be gained through a life centered on Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.

The 7th Annual Community Summer Art Exhibition


2018 Summer Art Exhibit

Come view the wonderful local art, see the images of the 7th Annual Community Summer Art Exhibition.

k2sNlR

You will be supporting local visual artists of north central Ohio.

2015-05-31_14.56.45

Who knows; you might find some art to decorate your life! This exhibit is composed of 17 local, area and regional artists who are exhibiting over 40 items composed of paintings, watercolors, pastels, fiber and photography through the Willard, Greenwich, North Fairfield and Wakeman branches of the Huron County Community Library for this exhibition and contest.

10006004_844085782271948_4252527976982088313_o

         When you support local art from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting, drawing or photograph. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not just viewing a thing; you are viewing a piece of a heart, a part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life. Most importantly, you are participating with the artist and providing them encouragement for something they are truly passionate about! That’s why we hope you will join us and view our Summer Art Exhibition!

On Saturday, August 4, 2018 join us for the opening celebration of this exhibit! Local musician Mike White will be performing on guitar, and homemade ice cream will be served by members of the New Haven United Methodist Church on the lawn next to their Community Prayer Garden, which is next to the Art Junction, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.

Clock Tower Fundraiser/Auction

SAM_1075.jpg

We are auctioning off a watercolor painting of the Willard Clock Tower by former Willard artist Teruko Wilde who now creates and resides in Taos, New Mexico.

auction.jpg

Teruko Wilde was born in Nagoya, Japan. After moving to the United States as a teenager she studied at the University of Cincinnati and Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio. An award-winning artist, Ms. Wilde has had numerous one-person and group shows. She initially established herself as a prominent pastel and watercolor artist before moving to Taos, NM in 1986. Expansive southwestern skies, approaching storms, and moody sunsets describe the colorful oil paintings of Teruko Wilde, which became known as her ‘Southwest Series’ and have been in popular demand for more than a decade. She has said that Mother Nature creates beautiful artwork in her sunsets, mountains, and trees…Ms. Wilde believes that it is her job as a fine artist to alter and reinterpret that beauty into beautiful and joyful paintings.

This painting auction is to help raise funds for the Willard Clock Tower.
