Arts

The Old Meeting House Arts Ministries are founded upon the belief that the arts are an integral part of religious experience. Through art, literature, music, theater, and movement human beings grow, explore their spiritual needs, and express their deepest feelings. The arts also bring people together, creating and strengthening ties that enhance personal, social, and spiritual lives.
                       
Upcoming Events
Art Show in Parish House

Wendy Soliday

As I Pass By….is a collection of pastel paintings by Wendy Soliday.  Many of these 
paintings begin as “drive-by” moments –a flickers of light through the woods, a glimpse of 
beauty in the rear view mirror, a temporary reflection on the water-that beckon and compel 
Wendy to stop and paint.  Read more, click here.


If you or someone you know are interested in exhibiting please let Wendy Soliday know. If you have ideas or suggestions or photos please get in touch with her. She can be reached by emailing arts@oldmeetinghouse.org. 



Stories for a Winter's Eve
December 16
shows at 3pm & 7pm

Stories for a Winter’s Eve creates the magic and warmth of gathering around the fireplace with friends and family to share stories and songs of the season. Featuring original short stories by Vermont authors and songs by Vermont musicians Pete Sutherland and Patti Casey, a truly local production.  
Former Vermont Stage Company artistic director Mark Nash will be joined by actress Kathryn Blume to share funny, poignant, and heartwarming tales of friendship, generosity, and community — stories that remind us of the connections we feel during this special time of year. Ornamented by Casey and Sutherland's original music, Stories for a Winter’s Eve brings warmth to the season's long, cold nights and celebrates the turning from dark to light up here in the north country.
This is the 6th year this show has made a home at the Old Meeting House, and tickets tend to go quickly. Although this is absolutely a family-friendly event, small children may find it difficult to sit quietly through the stories. Refreshments will be available at intermission.

For a generation, the Old Meeting House has provided strong support to the creative energy and artistic expression of the community served by the church. This support has nurtured a strong and diverse music program, the periodic production of musical theater, a concert series, visual arts exhibits, variety shows, creative worship services, and the integration of the arts throughout the OMH Sunday school curriculum. 

OMHAM is organized to provide the infrastructure, administrative support, and organizational context for this arts programming. It will promote the arts within our spiritual community and thereby strengthen the church and minister to those reached by its activities


MUSIC: OMH was recently featured in a fun music video by renowned jazz singer Indra Rios-Moore. When sending the link Indra remarked:  "It was a lovely day last fall and we had a yummy lunch at the church! You have a wonderful community feeling there! Hope you enjoy the finished music video. Sending warm regards, "  Indra
