ArtPrize 2017
Keeler Gallery
Exhibit Dates: September 20th - October 8th

Beginning with the inaugural ArtPrize® event in 2006, FSC has hosted a unique juried display. The theme is always "Art to Change The World," and the pieces are installed in our Keeler Gallery, on the Mezzanine, in the Tower Room, and throughout the Church House Lobby. 
For a sneak preview of the 2017 installations, please visit ArtPrize's venue page.

"Art to Change the World - Inspiring Social Justice" continues to be the theme of our venue in this 9th year of ArtPrize. This year, we have 26 Artists with work in all four ArtPrize categories: two-dimensional, three-dimensional, installation, and time-based. You can see all of the work athttp://www.artprize.org/fountain-street-church. The exhibition opens with a Reception for Artists, congregants, and friends in the Social Hall. ArtPrize begins on Wednesday, September 20th, and ends on Sunday, October 8th. Hours are 12:00-8:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 12:00-6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Each year, we depend on many volunteers to greet and guide visitors. This year, a volunteer shift will be just two hours instead of the three-hour commitment in previous years. Visitors to FSC really appreciate "Art to Change the World" and the community effort involved, so please consider volunteering. If you are interested, please contact Penny Barstow at either (512-413-0428) or pennyBarstow@aol.com.  Each year, this exhibition would not be possible without the generous financial contributions of congregants. Many thanks to all who have helped make our venue possible!  Questions about ArtPrize?  Please contact ArtPrize Task Force Chair, Edgar Marty, at either (616) 454-2755 or eo.marty@gmail.com.
