There’s a dance
going on right now.
It’s been going on for a long time, the steps passed down from generation to generation. The dancers weave in and out of mystery, animated by questions of faith, giving bodily shape to things unseen. In this work being done by living artists, and in the conversation of the community that supports them, the dance goes on. Every so often, the dancers extend a hand to include another person.
Perhaps that’s you.
Image is one of the few venues for artists and arts participants who are serious about the nexus of art, mystery, and faith.
We host the conversation.
We nurture the artists.
We invite the world.
Take a look around this page, and see who else is supporting Image, and why.
The dance is happening. Will you join it?
