Artist Josie Pearce poses with Shuswap Rock Rhapsody, an acrylic painting she created during a class she facilitated earlier this year at Sorrento Centre. Josie has generously donated this wonderful painting to the Sorrento Centre’s Art Auction going live on November 1, 2023.
Over the past 60 years, Sorrento Centre has been privileged to host and initiate numerous and varied expressive arts programs, resident artists and creative projects. Leaders have long recognized the importance of creative expression and its relationship to the mystical Divine.
Our conviction is that art and beauty address the human need for hope. For many, hope is functionally inseparable from beauty. Beauty helps us believe that divine good does prevail. Seeking to bring the Kingdom of God to earth includes restoring the beauty that is present in creation and adding to it.
To celebrate this aspect of Sorrento Centre, creative groups visiting the Centre have been asked to donate to an online art auction slated to go live November 1 and concluding on November 10. We have been gifted with many unique creations showcasing our guests’ skills and talents including an amazing full-size quilt by the gifted Lynn Knox. Proceeds will support Sorrento Centre’s beautification projects.
