  2. “14 Stations” Exhibit in Gallery

    14 STATIONS
    A Painter and a Prophet: the 14 Stations of the life of John Boyle, Painted by James B. Janknegt

    March 2 – May 5th
    Celebrate this body of work that was created over a 14-year period. The works represent 14 scenes from John Boyle’s life and together with The Royal Painter, James Janknegt, visions of The Prophet came to life on the canvas for all of Austin to witness. The works are accompanied by GODESE Prose, a lyrical language that links together words and conceptions, creating a hidden ‘parable-like’ experience inviting the viewer to go before The Throne of God that they might have the eyes to see and the ears to hear what The Spirit is saying.

    Artist Talk: A Dialogue between The Royal Painter and the Prophet. Sunday, March 5th, 2017 5:30 PM at Hope Chapel. Get a glimpse into their 14 year relationship and how these works came to be commissioned. Q & A.

  3. Gallery Exhibit — Women of Hope: “True Names”

    Currently hung on the Sanctuary Gallery walls is an exhibit by members of the Women’s Ministry at Hope Chapel, entitled, “True Names.”

    “As women of hope I believe God calls us to reach the generation following us, and the one that has gone before us. A bridging of generations. It is in the beautiful weaving of young and old that God reveals our True Names. The pieces displayed reflect the artist interpretations of theirs or corporately our True Names as women. No more labels. Simply woman hearing the song of heaven as He sings over us our names.” – Lisette Espinosa

    This will be an evolving installation, with additional pieces going up over the length of the show.

  4. Waldrip Exhibit Now On Display

    Currently up on our sanctuary gallery walls and placed around the building is a 2-D and 3-D exhibit by Marian Waldrip.

    Marian’s profile from her website:

    “Marian Waldrip is an artist, painter, and sculptor whose art shows her unique gifts of insight and power. Insight into the human soul, spirit, and power to forcefully and keenly portray them. Classically trained, and highly knowledgeable in anatomy, she works in both 2D and 3D.”

    “Marian has studied sculpture and art history under Stanley Marcus at the University of Texas at Permian Basin and figure drawing under Dr. Vincent Mariani at the University of Texas at Austin as well as special studies in sculpture at the Elizabet Ney Conservatory in Austin, Texas.”

    Marian’s work effects the viewer on profound and immediate levels, leaving the viewer with a resonating sense of presence lasting long after encounter.
