Members of the Episcopal Diocese of El Camino Real, plus friends, family and local communities, are invited to join Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves at the 2018 open house and art exhibition on Sunday, June 24. The historic Sargent House in downtown Salinas will be open from 3-6 pm, showcasing new works from artists in the Central Coast and South Bay Area.

A special highlight of the afternoon exhibition is a selection of paintings by homeless individuals provided by First Methodist Church in Salinas.

The Sargent House is a 1896-built landmark home that now serves as the diocesan offices. It’s located at 154 Central Avenue, one block from the Steinbeck House, childhood home of famed author John Steinbeck. Light refreshments will be included.

The exhibit represents the creative passion of the artists and their vibrant creations represent a variety of art forms: oils, watercolors, photographs, weavings, sculptures and mixed media. The event is produced by the Diocesan Arts Commission, whose mission is to display the work of leading artists from the communities of our diocese.
