Camden Beautiful – William’s New Exhibit at Gallery Eleven One – Preview Opens Thursday, Oct. 16th

Join us for a reception to celebrate a preview of William’s new art exhibit entitled Camden Beautiful. This exhibit is stunning – one you do not want to miss! This reception is in conjunction with Camden’s 3rd Thursday Art Crawl on Thursday, October 16th, from 4-8pm.
.
As we have now lived and worked in Camden for over three years, so many incredible people and experiences in the city have touched us deeply. Throughout these years, William has been moved to sketch and paint what is beautiful in Camden. Also, he has been inspired to paint the great hope of what is to come for the people here. All of this led to his new exhibit, Camden Beautiful. Please come experience the preview of this exhibit and our beautiful city.
.
If you are not able to attend on Thursday, October 16th, or Saturday, October 25th (for Homecoming-please view below), please feel free to schedule a time to visit the gallery that is best for you. We look forward to welcoming you.

William’s Commissioned Painting “Oneness” & 26 Feet Tall Stained Glass Installations at the Phenomenal Salvation Army Kroc Center in Camden

The Salvation Army Kroc Center is now open in Camden and what a gift this is to the city and people of Camden! The Kroc Center is 120,000 square feet on a 24 acre campus in Cramer Hill. This awesome center literally sits on the location that formerly was a huge landfill. The Kroc Center team have transformed the land and will continue to transform lives in Camden. So many people and organizations worked together to have the Kroc Center be a beautiful jewel for those in Camden. What a testimony this is of how with God, all things are possible! 
.
For the opening weekend on Oct. 3-5, William’s commissioned painting “Oneness” was installed. Also, the 26 feet tall stained glass installations of Oneness were complete in the chapel. Enjoy the photos above of the art.

We are so honored to have these commissioned works in the phenomenal Salvation Army Kroc Center, and we are so blessed to be in partnership with Majors Alma & Paul Cain and all the Kroc Center-Camden leadership & staff.
