Chapel Art Exhibit: Robert Gleason
Portland from an Artist's View
Exhibit from February 2nd through March 29th
Join us Sunday, February 2nd, following worship for the Opening Reception and an opportunity to meet artist Robert Gleason. Refreshments will be served.
As an artist, Robert Gleason has been greatly influenced by urban life and paints mostly cityscapes. He loves the thrum of life in streets and the rush of humanity. His training as an illustrator, taught him to be careful with detail while his growth as a fine artist has brought him to a broader world of expression and more freedom with his brush.
A New Chapter for Julia West!
As we look around the church, one of the most pressing needs in the city remains the need for affordable housing for those at risk. The congregation unanimously endorsed the disposition of the church’s Julia West site so that it can be redeveloped as affordable housing. For details, click this link for a background document. We look forward to a new chapter for Julia West, to broaden our heart for the city!
