July 22

Mayan Art with Mimi Castillo Zuniga

Mimi has based her art work on the Popol Vuh, the Mayan Sacred Book of stories and narratives that form the foundation of Mayan beliefs. The Popol Vuh, or Book of the Community, contains the history of the planet and explains Mayan mythology and genealogy. Mimi's son Marco Castillo (yes, that Marco!) will be on the patio from 1-3PM with his contagious, uplifting latin-funky-guitar grooves, and her daughter Miriam is flying in from Kelowna to offer a special Mayan workshop and meditation at 1PM in the Sanctuary.

Mayan Spiritual Understanding of Time - a workshop introducing you to the Mayan knowledge of time and symbolism as a tool of self-knowledge and self awareness. The workshop will include a Mayan ceremonial meditation at the end. To pre-register for the workshop contact hollie@mymts.net.

July 29

Karen Taylor - Fine Art Porcelain

An exhibition from Fine Art Porcelain's new collection. The limitless possibility of ceramic material provides the perfect outlet for Karen's artistic vision. Karen has apprenticed with Manitoba masters of wood-fired pottery, David Krindle, Alan Lacovetsky and Kirk Creed, toured internationally, and worked in many different studios. She is a self-employed artist who has set up many studios and kilns, coordinated exhibitions and professional craft markets, and taught hundreds of people through her classes and workshops. (see August 19th for information about her pit-firing workshop at SNAC)

Urban Street Funk - This is a unique community sunday with the exhibit and music coming from the same multi-talented artist. Karen is one half of the band Urban Street Funk along with Scott Young. Join this exciting roller-coaster ride to the ever-changing soul of the city. With a Juno-award winning groove and powerful lyrics, this super-hot act intoxicates and electrifies, and heats up the city! Get up and get down, this train is about to pull out of the station.....be quick , be cool. Get on board!

Connie Bart-Hamel -"Unveiling the Feminine Face of God"

"A bridge between the historical and the contemporary...some carvings are my design and workmanship with integration of the traditional iconic line. Some of the works have mirrors and high gloss reflectors to take on the ambiance of the surroundings as well as include the viewer as participant. Most have some form of integrated hand carving or sewing in recognition of the authentic style of commissions in the Church. There are textile pieces; photographs, and carvings, glass, and mixed media artworks large and small. There are countless ways of praying; mine involves this creative expression to give Glory to God. Unveiling the Feminine Face of God is my journey over the past 10 years that had lead me to a pivotal point of searching for my place in the church. Unveiling seeks to empower women to rightfully use their gifts, pass them on to future generations and heralds how women have nurtured the survival of Christianity for 2000 years." www.artographycanada.com.
