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.
