Mark your calendars! Plymouth will host three month-long art exhibitions this fall in Hildebrand Hall. Honoring church-wide themes — September/ Hospitality, October/Working for Justice, November/ Gifts of Ministry — the first exhibition welcomes art by Plymouth Housing Group staff and residents.
The mixed media show will include painting, pottery, photography and more. “We are excited about bringing the work into Plymouth Church and collaborating with Plymouth Church again,” said Elisabeth Vasquez Hein, PHG Volunteer Outreach Manager. The opening will take place 5 to 6 pm, First Thursday, September 4, in Hildebrand Hall.
October brings the work of OPS, Organization for Prostitute Survivors, a Seattle non-profit dedicated to a world of gender equality and mutuality, free from all forms of oppression and exploitation. Organizers plan to show a wide variety of visual art in addition to movement and literary works at the opening slated for Thursday, October 2. Plymouth will also host a second opening following the 11 am service, Sunday, October 12, which will include performance art.
Plymouth member and long-time artist Tracy Simpson shares her all original acrylic/paper/potato monotypes, shifting color and shape, in November. Give us this Day, the title of her exhibition, will convey gifts of time and every-day life. “Their surface uniformity is like the words of a familiar prayer said over and over,” explained Simpson.
