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.
Call for art
"Sea and Sky"
It is almost overwhelming to contemplate the sea and the sky – the vastness, the magic and the
mystery, the power and yet the peace. Vast galaxies stretch beyond our comprehension as do
the bodies of water that cover the earth. From the winds to the waves, from the constellations to
the coral, from the birds to the fish, we cannot help but be moved by all that God has created in
the heavens and in the water.
These God-given bodies touch each of us differently. How do you express through your art your
personal relationship with the sea or the sky? You are invited to convey through your art what
“Sea and Sky” means to you by submitting your work for the next 2023 exhibit in the Charis
"Hand In Hand"
EXIBIT IS NOW OPEN THROUGH SUNDAY, APRIL 18.
Hand in Hand is the current exhibit in Charis Gallery, featuring 18 works by 10 local and international artists. Many of the works are available for purchase. Stop by and enjoy this thoughtful exhibit.
If you would like your work to be considered for future exhibitions, please contact Ann Moore at email@example.com to be added to our Artists Registry and you will receive our next Call to Artists. We would love to see your work!
