Church as art gallery

Scribbled notes from my wanderings around the Christchurch art gallery after church yesterday…

Church as art gallery
    Church as museum
        Church as town hall
            Church as tourism hotspot
                Church as family

Art connects a humanity
    Evokes from within us

Priest as artist?
    Or curator?

Does a childrens gallery deserve Colin McCahon?
    Or comic sans?

We come seeking different profounds.

What evokes?
    Terror
    Humor
    Humanity
    Mirrors
    Beauty
    Light
    Darkness
    Disgust

Art as conversation
    With the artist
        With ourselves
            With prayer

Art is what we notice
