Episcopal Church and the Visual Arts

The mission of The Episcopal Church and Visual Arts (ECVA) is to encourage artists, individuals, congregations, and scholars to engage the visual arts in the spiritual life of the church. ECVA values the significance of visual imagery in spiritual formation and the development of faith, and creates programs to support those who are engaged in using the visual arts in spiritual life.

Welcome to ECVA's first Open-Studio Exhibition, "Gifts." The Call for this exhibition asked for artists' best or favorite work which had not previously been shown at ECVA. The exhibition title addressed a primary characteristic of the artist's life, of the spiritual life, that of gift-giving and gift-receiving. You will see great diversity in this exhibition. And underlying it all is the great generosity of artists sharing their gifts.

Visit the exhibition here.
