Just as God created each of us, we are invited to co-create with God throughout our lives. This may be why God gave people the gifts of creativity, artistic talent, and a passion for making art. The arts council helps make Trinity church a place where those who have been created as artists in the world may showcase their work, and where the whole community can benefit by having access to great art. New art shows are installed every few months in our parish hall and adjoining hallways.
Art can be viewed Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 5 pm, and on Fridays after 12 Noon to 5 pm, as well as following church services on Sundays. Please use the River Street entrance.

Petrie, who has a studio at the Umbrella Center for the Arts, has painted most of her life. A longtime painter in watercolor and oils, Petrie started painting in pastels about 7 years ago, enjoying the immediacy, freshness and mark-making of the medium. Her expressive landscape paintings evoke an emotional response by exploring the effect of color on mood and atmosphere as well as how color creates light. Many of her subjects are of local areas and are notations of her daily experiences of the world around her, the revelations and delights that make her stop and look. As one curator wrote of her work, Petrie’s paintings “evoke places of hope, calm, magic, and even sanctuary.”
