Desert Garden Art Center



Our Art Center is located in the Fellowship Hall.  While we have some fixed artworks that are continually on display, we also feature special collections with a seasonal theme.  These collections can be anything from ceramics to needlework.  The artwork we feature is lent to the Art Center by members.  It's a great way to demonstrate the gifts and talents God has bestowed on our members.     


          Jerry Cowdrey, a Heard Museum docent and member of Desert Garden United Church of Christ, explains work in the current Henri Matisse exhibit.  Thirty-four members and friends of the church participated in the social fellowship outing on January 9.

ART CENTER  Please note the added pictures above.


           Now featuring “Memories of Winter—Times Gone By.” 

Take a few moments when you enjoy your coffee and goodies after church to wander through the display area.  Several of our members are sharing their winter memories including an extensive display of lighthouses, each one having a special meaning for Sara Givens, owner. There are also a number of paintings and other memorabilia.  Our thanks to Sara as well as Patty Nordahl, Gail Mattson, Jean Darnell, Corky McLaughlin and as always, Jeanne Jensen, whose stash of decorations is endless and much appreciated.


 We welcome anything you would share with the congregation or any other suggestions you might have for 2019 displays.
