Request for Proposals for Presentations in the Gallery

by Karen Dawson, chair

The new Gallery has a new role at East Shore. At the time the previous gallery was established it was as a much needed venue on the Eastside for artists wishing to display and sell their work. The new Gallery has a vision of collaboration, coordination and consultation with groups inside our church community as well as with those in the outside community. The Gallery mission includes aesthetic appreciation, spiritual enrichment and education about social justice and current event issues.

Since last Spring, the Gallery has presented quilts from the East Shore community, sponsored Eastside artists through EAFA (Evergreen Association of Fine Arts), and a posthumous show of the art work of East Shore Member, Wanda Hickman, the mother of member Aimee Woolwine.

At this time the Gallery is asking for proposals from East Shore groups for a presentation in the Gallery. If your group has an idea for a presentation that fits the Gallery mission please contact Karen Dawson, Gallery Chair or Nicole Duff, Membership Development Manager for more information.
