Visual Arts Ministry

art gall

The Arts Ministry at St. Francis is another way we acknowledge the grace and beauty in God’s world. Through the work of artists and photographers from the Pacific Northwest, we enhance our worship with displays in the narthex of the church. A committee made up of St. Francis members selects appropriate art and manages the displays.  Paintings, photographs and other media are typically on display for a month to six weeks. Often, the work of St. Francis parishioners is displayed. We have also displayed the works of nationally prominent artists.

The stunning photographs on display in the narthex are by Oregon photographer, Patrick Campbell.

Patrick is a retired physician who grew up in Oregon. During his working years Patrick studied and practiced photography. He is now retired with time to make and reproduce gorgeous images of Oregon and the West.
