excerpts that inform Art Show on Main

“The first step in our creative journey is to discover not whether we are creative, but how we are creative…What is our personal brand of originality – as individuals and as a community.”  -- Alice Bass, The Creative Life

“Since much of the Christian community has ignored the arts in our recent history, the Christian who wishes to learn about art must, by necessity, learn in the larger world, outside of the Christian ghetto – a ghetto that some Christians have created in a misbegotten attempt to find a sort of heaven on earth.” – Schaeffer, Sham Pearls

"Nothing begets nothing; something begets something." -- David Taylor, Union Center Artist Retreat, May 2009
