About this Exhibit and the Artists

Brenda Larson began her art journey in 2007 guided by a friend and Maryland Hall Instructor. Since then she has worked in many mediums including watercolors, oil, acrylics, pastels and charcoal. Having several series of work underway simultaneously, it gives her the freedom to be spontaneous and to follow where impulses and creativity leads. Her work is often inspired from within and by the intensity of the moment her style is ever evolving. She works both collaboratively and individually on a variety of projects. An active member of the community, her work is often featured in live and silent auctions supporting favorite charities and private collections int he US, Costa Rica, Brazil and Protugal.

Bryon Rogers was born in East Fishkill, New York, in 1976. His inspiration comes from life experiences and passion for the sea. Bryon received his degree from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point in 1999. At an early age Bryon had the opportunity to begin racing sailboats and has since continued his career on the water. There is never a day as good as the one spent on the water and Bryon's relief prints are intended to capture just that idea. Bryon has shown his work in national juried shows at the Maryland Federation of Art, Circle Gallery and the West Annapolis art gallery as well as in many private collections throughout the United States. Bryon currently lives in Pasadena, Maryland.

The Art Ministry

The Woods Art Ministry was created out of the conviction that the arts have an important role to play in the life of the church. Throughout history, the arts have been one of the significant ways that people express and understand religious truth.

The Art Ministry is responsible for art exhibits in the Wood Gallery and, from time to time, offers programs and resources related to the visual arts. These have included workshops, field trips and tours to view significant art, as well as providing visual arts for use in worship (banners, projected images, etc.)
