"Incarnation and Expectation" Explores Themes of Advent and Christmas

Friday, December 8, 2017

Sincere people of all faiths often struggle to balance the excitement and enthusiasm of a religious holiday and keeping faithful to the core message of these celebrations. We like to embellish what we hold dear and meaningful, but sometimes our enthusiasm can obscure the stories that shape our faith and our lives. Like a good Sunday preacher, artists love to use these stories as a basis for their creative expression and to explore the intersection of culture, tradition, faith and how humanity shapes its belief and values. Eight artists affiliated with Goose Creek Studio have come together to focus on the seasons of Advent and Christmas with new works that explore themes of incarnation and expectation. Opening reception for Incarnation and Expectation will be held on Second Friday on December 8 from 5-8 PM. Goose Creek Studio and Custom Framing, will also be open for the Holiday Art Studio and Gallery Tour on Sunday, December 10, 1:00-5:00 pm.
