C.cada Museum Trip

C.cada , our church’s artist group, has been meeting monthly since last June. We have more than thirty artists across the various disciplines who have committed to come together to encourage, improve and train.

 

This month twenty-two of us took a field trip to the Worcester Art Museum for a guided tour.The weather was unseasonably warm. The sun was high in the sky when we arrived. So our artists didn’t mind standing out for a photo-op. Once inside though we were all business.

 

 

 

 

 

Our docent, Joe, explained that WAM has the largest display of ancient mosaics in America. This one comes from 6th century Antioch, the city where men and women first took the name “Christian”.

 

 

 

 

The museum also sports a fully reconstructed monastic chapter house from the 12th century. I could have just sat under the vaulted arches all day. Something about them is very soothing.

El Greco’s, Β The Weeping Magdalene hangs in one of the center galleries. What I didn’t know was that my daughter was his model for the piece!After the tour and some private time milling through the various galleries we all finished off with a traditional Irish meal at O’Connor’s Pub in West Boylston.

Tell me about groups you belong to. What do you do for fun?

  1. I love that you HAVE an artist group . . .and that you do something like this is so cool. πŸ™‚ There is a group that I still belong to, but I haven’t been able to participate any more. It’s a polymer clay group, and there will be a class teaching us how to make something and then there will be a guild time afterward, to talk and share and work on whatever we want to. πŸ™‚ Being around those ladies and seeing what all they make always inspired me! God bless you, Pastor J!

  2. Thanks for sharing, Pastor J

    Looks like you had a boatload of fun! ( I scored really low on that quiz that tested my tolerance , I mean aptitude for things artsy.) πŸ™‚

    My groups have largely been shelved, thanks to new lifestyle. 😦 Your post reminds me of the good ol’ days though. Mayhaps it’s time I revisit ?

    Blessings

    P.S. Loving the group name. That’s pretty cool!
