What is a home? There are nests, dens, and burrows. There are houses of all kinds that people find, own, rent, or share. There are home that feel safe and secure, and those that do not. Everyone deserves a clean, safe place to live. However, the availability, equality, and affordability of housing are often unreliable.
Will your work convey safety or trouble? Humans or wildlife? We look forward to presenting a wide variety of responses to the subject of "home" in this juried exhibit.

Edith Hodge Pletzner:
A Retrospective Exhibit
July 15 - August 13, 2023
Come see over 30 works of painting, drawing, pastels, and sculpture in this retrospective exhibit for local artist Edith Hodge Pletzner.
Even if you missed our past exhibits, you can still see photos of many of the wonderful works displayed.
This permanent gallery space - a ministry of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church - continues a long tradition of providing a home for the arts. The gallery represents two years of preliminary work by the community of St. Luke's to prepare a direction and mission, ready a gallery ministry committee, determine the optimum location, and attend to the many details inherent in creating a permanent showcase for the visual arts.
One of the questions that arose was the best process to use for actually hanging the work. Various systems were discussed, but one group member dismissed most of them out of hand. “Well, what IS the best way as you see it?” the group leader questioned. “NAILS IN THE WALL” was the immediate response! “Excellent,” responded the coordinator, "and that will also be the gallery name!"
The group thought about that for several months, but the longer they considered it, the more the name grew on them. It did have a certain “biblical flavor” . . . and what’s more, that is how the work in St. Luke's Gallery is hung . . . by nails solidly placed in the wall!
We hope you feel welcome here, visit the space regularly, bring friends and allow the work to dialogue with your spirit.
The mission of Nails in the Wall Gallery, a Ministry of St. Luke's is to broaden the program
