Evergreen Art Gallery

People ask us, “What is a church doing dabbling in art?” Down through the centuries the Church has been known as a venue for creative endeavors. In our day it seems as if the Church has largely relinquished the vital role it once played at the forefront of the arts. At the Evergreen Gallery one of our objectives is to reverse this trend. It is important to us that:

1. Those who may not otherwise attend church would feel welcome in our gallery.
2. The Church reclaims its role as a patron of the arts.
3. The arts are seen as a means whereby God can make himself known.
4. Artists would be encouraged in their vocation (calling) within the fine arts.
5. The proceeds from the sale of art would further worthy charitable causes.

Each artist featured below has either shown, or is now showing at the Evergreen Gallery. If you enjoy this site, please stop by our gallery at 17700 1st Ave. S in Burien. We are open from 9-3 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you want to be added to our contact list for our quarterly art show, artist’s receptions and jazz night please CONTACT US via our website - making sure to type in your return email address (as it is not automatically recorded in the contact form.)

This gallery is part of The Evergreen Church. Its operation is analogous to running an onsite information center that is part of the Church's missionary outreach. Charges to cover the cost of materials does not constitute a business for the church. Similarly, once the overhead expenses of the gallery are met (I.e. once the costs of the artists are covered) all of the proceeds go directly toward funding specific missionary endeavors - presently, we are helping to establish an orphanage in Tajikistan.
