The Virginia Street Church presents ART ON THE HILL, a synergy of art and music at the historic Swedenborgian Virginia Street Church on Cathedral Hill on October 8, October 9 and October 10, 2021.
More than 13 artists are gathered to celebrate the joy of artistic creation by sharing their paintings, drawings, pottery, textile arts and photography. We are proud to showcase both accomplished artisans and talented fledglings, working in watercolors, pen and ink, acrylics, oils, fabric and quilting, thread and stitch. Subjects include still life paintings, portraits, abstracts, landscape paintings as well as totally digital works. Traditional and chemical cyanotype photographs will be shown as well as classical hand-thrown and Sgraffito technique pottery
Joining the artists are musical performances throughout the 3 day event featuring original compositions and covers in folk rock, classical keyboard, rock and jazz by more than 7 musicians.
Our artists and musicians will be showcased in the historic, Cass Gilbert designed sanctuary of the Swedenborgian Virginia Street Church and in the Clarence Johnston designed parish hall. This remarkable building built in 1886 houses one of the oldest continuing congregations in Minnesota. Tours gladly given.
