Art & Quilt Show, May 12

Save This Date May 12, 2012


Our beloved CACC is such a lively, growing and wonderfully diverse congregation! But have you ever wished you were better acquainted with some of the folks you shake hands with at the beginning of worship or drink coffer with after church? Have you ever yearned to have a leisurely informal time to connect with others in your church family with no official agenda, in a creative, inspiring setting?

Our Women of Wonder affinity group, with the much-appreciated expertise of the Men of Might and our youth groups, will present our first Spring Art and Quilt Festival on Saturday, May 12. For our church community it will offer a leisurely opportunity to enjoy being together, surrounded by an impressive array of art created by our members/friends and young people. For the wider Modesto area community, it will allow people to know who we are at CACC, as they enjoy the creative work of local artists.

This free event will take place in Fellowship Hall and our church grounds on the Saturday of Mothers’ Day weekend, from 11 am to 4 pm. and will showcase quilts made by our congregation’s Quilting Group, as well as a variety of paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, and mixed-media art, and a display in memory of past CACC artists Glenna Anderson, Karen Cox, Evelyn Mayman and Paul Sesser.

It will be family-friendly, with paint easels and sidewalk chalk offering children an opportunity to create their own artwork. Some art will be for sale, a quilt hand-made by Liz Carota will be raffled, and a silent auction of beloved artwork will add support to our budget.

You will be able to read about our festival in Stanislaus Connections, look for a notice in the Modesto Bee, and see posters around town. And, yes, you may volunteer to help make this event a glorious success, by taking a 2-hour shift as a greeter, docent or cashier, or helping with children’s activities, feeding the volunteers, or helping with set-up, take-down, or clean-up. To volunteer, e-mail or call 521-1080. Also look for our table after church where you can buy a raffle ticket for the beautiful quilt and can sign up to volunteer to help with the fun.

It will indeed be a grand occasion! See you all there! And many thanks to WOW, MOM, our young people, and those of you who will join us at the Festival and/or offer to help!
