Visual Arts at RUMC
The name Charis is derived from a Greek word meaning "favor" or "grace," but is perhaps most accurately rendered by the concept of goodwill.
Founded in 2010, Charis (KAR-is) Gallery is located in the Sanctuary building and spans the hallway west of the main lobby. The Welcome Center (off the hallway) accommodates multi-dimensional fine art in three glass cabinets. The Apostles Gallery is located in the opposite hallway. This collection of Kenneth Wyatt’s paintings of Jesus and His disciples (and Paul) are on permanent display.

Kristin reflects, "...my work has changed to reflect my deep love, gratitude, and the devotion to the Lord for giving me many miracles and another chance at life. Most of my images come from dreams and visions and are accompanied by a prayer or message."
