If you get questions about the event, please direct people to the church's website, where they can find home details, the video, and donation link. A web search for the church will get them to the website easily. The video is currently in production and will be available soon.

Artist in Residence
 A daily event to recommend! This week's Artists in Residence are Kelly Gross and Randy Blake Clontz, both oil painters.
Kelly is an emerging artist specializing in oil paintings of the natural world. Her work is a blend of realism and impressionism, working with vibrant colors and deep contrasts of light and shadow. 
After pursuing art education in Detroit and work opportunities in Chicago, Randy relocated back home to Hickory in 2002 to create beautiful oil landscapes of the North Carolina mountains. Randy’s commissioned oil portraits appear in private, corporate, and public collections in Chicago, Michigan, California, & NC.
Artists in Residence at Edgewood Cottage continues through September 19 and is open every day.
More events and updates can be found on our online calendar.
