Opening: Art of the Tea Ceremony, November 16, 2018

November 16th was a delightful evening at the Chapel Gallery! 

We celebrated the opening of Sharon A. Stone’s beautiful work “Art of the Tea Ceremony”.  

Sharon’s vibrant, harmonious work invites viewers to look, reflect, discuss, and look again!  

The folk who gathered were fortunate to hear Sharon describe in simple, compelling terms the four-step process that underlies each of these amazing pieces of art.  Then, we noticed people once again moving to the Gallery for further reflection! 

We were delighted to hear many comments about the inviting space and the sense of welcome they experienced.  We are thrilled to continue this wonderful journey for St. Matthias, our neighbours and visitors.   

Special thanks to Art Hargrove for taking the photos of the opening.  Wonderful to see folk enjoying the art and the opportunity to engage!

  • If you missed the opening, the show continues through December 20th, with our opening hours of Saturday and Tuesday, 11-3 pm and Thursday, 2-4 pm (we will open the gallery before and after our Christmas pageant on December 23 and worship services on December 24th and 25th).
