The Undercroft Gallery: An Art Ministry
St. Matthew's is blessed to have among its members a number of very talented and well-known artists who believe that art is a gift to be shared and an integral part of St. Matthew's ministries. The Undercroft Gallery is located in the first floor parish hall and the Art Ministry team organizes regular shows by artists in a variety of media.
These artists also develop special pieces to enhance the worship of the church. For Lent one year, twelve artists created the Stations of the Cross, now permanently installed in the worship space. During Advent another year, a group of St. Matthew's and Jewish artists shared multimedia illustrations of selected psalms.
You may view the art before and after Sunday services, and on Tuesday through Friday during office hours, 9:30am - 2:30pm.
Sept 7 - Oct. 30: Our Years Through the Lens: A Photo Essay
To celebrate St. Mattew's 125th anniversary (and the 100th anniversary of the building) a talented group of parishioners assembled photos, memorabilia and fragments from our past. The focal point is an interactive timeline that allows parishioners to post their own photos and remembrances on a banner stretching the length of the room. All are invited to share in the history of our church and the important lives that have been and continue to be present to us in this wonderful community.
