Arts Council will once again be focusing on the Art of
Worship for their December Art Walk. The Art Walk is a
self-guided tour of downtown religious institutions taking place
on December 13th from 4pm to 7pm. These houses of worship will
focus on the art and architecture in their buildings and how the
art plays a part in furthering their message. Nine institutions
will be participating including Congregation Anshe Emeth Jewish
Synagogue, Warren Lodge #24 Masonic Temple, True Vine Church,
Westminster Presbyterian, St. Mary's Catholic (closing at 5:30),
St. Paul's Evangelical & Reformed, Greene St. Methodist, St.
James Episcopal Church and Congregational Christian United
Church of Christ. Each house of worship will light their steps
with luminaries so "Walkers" will know which entrance
to use. St. Paul's Evangelical & Reformed Church members
will be providing special music in the sanctuary and fellowship
hall, sharing church history, offering "hands-on"
tolling of the bells. The Arts Council hopes you'll join us for
this free event helping us further our mission of making the
arts accessible through education, support and presentation.
Maps of the participating locations can be found at
participating houses of worship and Readmore's Hallmark.
As a special add-on event, PAC is
having a ticketed progressive reception after the Art Walk. This
event will be a tour of 5 homes in the Caldwell Historic
District with each location featuring a "Nip and a
Sip". The homes will all be decorated for the holiday
season and each home will provide a small appetizer or dessert
and a festive beverage from wine to hot chocolate. Homes
featured on this tour will be Tim & Sue Peltier, serving
cheese and crackers, and wine, Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast,
serving assorted holiday cookies and homemade hot chocolate,
Rick & Denise Klosterman's providing meatballs and holiday
punch, Scott & Mary Frances Rodriguez will have figgy
pudding and hot buttered rum and Chuck & Shelley Black will
have nuts, olives and wine. Don Smith of Allisten Manor's Flower
Box will have his signature holiday decorations on display at
Chuck and Shelley Black's and GeNell's Flowers will have their
holiday arrangements featured at Tim and Sue Peliter's. Tickets
for this event are $10 and can be purchased at Readmore's
Hallmark starting December 2nd during regular business hours.
