Advent Evensong and Art Show 2011: Art and the Spiritual Journey

Abbo's Alley in the Fog
Every Advent, St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Paris, KY holds an Evensong and Art Show. This event showcases two great strengths of St. Peter's: terrific music and artistic expression. The focus of past years has been Angels, but this year we've expanded out to consider Art and the Spiritual Journey. How appropriate then, that our guest speaker at the Evensong will be Dr. Everett McCorvey, professor of voice at the University of Kentucky and founder of the American Spiritual Ensemble.  The Evensong begins at 5 pm. this Sunday, December 4th, in the sanctuary of St. Peter's, 311 High Street.
       Following the Evensong, will be a reception in the Parish Hall, for the exhibit Art and the Spiritual Journey. Works of poetry and all manner of media will be on display (and there will be food, too!) Everything from needlepoint to Mother Chris's drawings and a delightful ensemble of knitted creche figures will share space with beautiful paintings, including angels and landscapes. Who knows where your spiritual journey might take you--come have a look!
