The goal of the Visual Arts Ministry of Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church is to remind the observer of our Creator's boundless gifts and His immeasurable grace. We accomplish this through exhibitions, education programs, and opportunities for the congregation and community to participate in multimedia events. Exhibits are mounted regularly in the Ministries Center.
- Creativity through Autism Timothy School, Berwyn, PA. Sunday, March 4 to Sunday, April 1. In 1966, the Timothy School opened in the education building of BMPC to educate children diagnosed with autism or other special needs. After decades of success and a need for more space, the school relocated to Berwyn in 1998. The artwork of children with special needs will be brought back to BMPC to exhibit the creativity and accomplishments of both teachers and students. An artists’ reception will be held following the concert by the Bach Choir of Bethlehem on Sunday, March 18.
- Valerie Craig, Solo Show. Sunday, April 8 to Sunday, May 13. Valerie Craig of St. Davids is not only a church member but also a captivating painter of color and light whose impressionistic works have won awards both locally and abroad. Her exhibit will include rural and urban landscapes as well as still life designs and figures, all of which will be available for purchase. An artists’ reception will be held following Edward Landin’s organ recital on Sunday, April 8.
- Congregational Multi-Media Show. Sunday, May 20 through Monday, September 3. This show will welcome all artists of any media, but will particularly ask artists to consider preparing at least one work as a visual interpretation of a hymn from the new Presbyterian hymnal now in use at BMPC.
