Arts at HTAC

Holy Trinity is passionate about the arts and what the arts reveal about the human condition. We believe that art is an important part of how we express our life and our faith. We also believe that the arts serve as a way in which we can interact with God’s mission. As such, we have a large number of HTAC organized arts activities happening at Holy Trinity as well as being a sought-after venue for a variety of community arts groups.

This large (1500 sq ft), well lit hall has high ceilings and 68 lineal feet of wall and serves as an excellent exhibition space. Artists are invited to submit proposals to the Arts Commission at Holy Trinity (by mail, drop-off, or by email). Each submitted proposal should contain at least 8 images and a short description of the artist and the proposed exhibition. Exhibitions usually take place over a weekend with public showings on Saturday and Sunday. Artists must provide proof of insurance for showings at Holy Trinity or purchase third-party insurance (details available by contacting the Bookings Administrator). There is no rental fee for the space for art exhibitions but a 5% commission on all sales will be retained by the Gallery.
