Christian Art Festival
Once a year Cross View celebrates the visual arts with a month-long Christian Art Festival. Regional artists are invited to exhibit their art in our church, which is open to the public. Those viewing the exhibit will experience our Christian faith through artists using their creative gifts to visually express their faith.
After a two-year break due to a church building addition and the pandemic, we are pleased to announce that in May 2022 the Cross View Christian Art Festival is returning as we celebrate our 38th Annual Christian Art Festival, Creating for God’s Glory!
- Cross View’s Festival Art Exhibit featuring regional artists
- Eden to Eternity exhibit on loan from the Sandra Bowden Collection
- Culture and Faith - Art from West Africa exhibit by Togo artist Fabrice Eteka
Fabrice’s paintings and the Eden to Eternity exhibit by artists from the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama exemplify how Christian art transcends cultures and speaks directly to our united belief in Jesus, no matter what language we speak.
