The Downtown Presbyterian Church hosts a spring art show during the church season of Lent called The D.I.G.Through Art Show (Dialogue:an Interaction for Growth). The D.I.G.show began in 1998 as an extension of the artists-in-residency program and has explored a different theme each year during lent. Previous themes have included "Icons and Idols","Incarnation
and Risk","Human Sacrifice" and others.

Lent is the church season of 40 days (not including feast days) before Easter. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb.25th and ends on Easter Sunday, April 12th. It is symbolic of both the 40 years of Israel's wandering in the desert and the 40 days Jesus spent fasting and being tempted in the wild. The church feels this is an appropriate season to invite artists from our community to join us in wrestling with the challenges of our faith.

This year's theme is "Embodiment." Alongside the art show, the church will be hosting a film series on the same theme with a light meal provided before and opportunities for discussion after each film.

The grand opening reception and presentation of the purchase award will be on Saturday, March 7th 2009 from 6:00-9:00 PM and will coincide with the 1st Saturday Gallery Crawl and the church's monthly Art-Luck Potluck dinner and art reception.

Thanks from the resident artists of The Downtown Presbyterian Church: Beth Gilmore, Richard Feaster, Jodi Hays, Sarah Shearer, Elizabeth Streight, Tasha French & Tom Wills.

Hot off the press...

Adventures Inside A Bright-Eyed Sky is a not so tall tale about a boy named Jay, told by Jay. A young boy that is having trouble finding the reasons why his childhood seems to be departing just as soon as he is getting to the heart of it all.

In the search of truth behind every day everyday mysteries at the same time crossing paths with various characters into his life with lessons not really pertaining to the current thought of the moment, Jay discovers just how adversity, friendship, and death all happen for a reason … Jay discovers himself.

Jay’s older Scottish friend Kat once told him, ‘‘Life is what happens to most people when others are busy making plans.” But Jay didn’t ever plan on having a younger brother, he didn’t plan on the death of a best friend, and he didn’t plan on having to find all the answers that he’d ever questioned about life before his 13th birthday.

Sometimes, you have to step on the bus and find out for yourself. Sometimes, life just happens. Sometimes, sometimes, just may be right now.
