JANUARY SERVICES

January 28 ~ "Story Time: Behind the Visual Art at CUUC"

Speaker: Jenny Rieke

As a visual artist, my 18 year spiritual journey with this congrega-tion has manifested a variety of forms, most on display around our faith house. If you’re interested in the "backstory" -what powered the making of a piece of art, this is your opportunity to be firehosed. If you prefer the mystery of art as you directly ex-perience it, uncluttered by an artist’s process, wear your earbuds and make up your own stories as I give a tour of my 2 & 3-dimensional art, from our banner to the trombone chalice.
