BIG & small:Creatures of the Sea
Community art exhibit to promote love for all God’s sea creatures, in all sizes.
I am thrilled to bring back the animal art community exhibit in the Fireside Room for a second year. This exhibit is a wonderful opportunity to bring together a local community of artists and animal lovers to simply share their talents, whether professionally trained, a dabbled hobby, or somewhere in between. I’m also very happy to welcome back a few artists from last year’s show.
I hope you enjoy the exhibit and please do sign our guestbook and let us know what you think and share your info if you’re an artist (or you can shoot me an email). The wheels are already spinning for next year’s animal theme!
Thank you so much to the artists and volunteers who helped make this show happen.

KNOW, LOVE, DO
Changing Nature and Us
By artist Christian Kasperkovitz (aka Elkpen)
A Los Angeles-based artist, Elkpen looks for novel ways to talk about nature to a wide audience.
Part of my elkology practice is an engagement with the question of ….if you can name something does that lead to caring for something and does that lead to doing something? – Elkpen
