Alton | Dark Horse Art Works will present Redemption Art & Music Show July 31-August 2.
The Old Bakery Beer Company, 400 Landmarks Blvd. in Alton, will be open during normal business hours during the event. The Redemption Art Show is Friday, July 31 from 5 to 10 p.m., Saturday, August 1 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, August 2 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“The idea behind the Redemption Art Show is redemption,” says Mike Adams, Lead Pastor at Lifehouse Community Church. “It’s about restoring what was broken or lost. And it’s about bringing the community together for a great display of art and musical talent. We live in a society where things are discarded. That’s what God is about, redoing a life, making something great out of it”.
An eclectic display of art with the theme of redemption will be on display and for sale during the show. The art is being sold on a first come, first served basis.
Eric Stauffer, of Dark Horse Art Works will host the show and is donating his commission from each sale to the Lifehouse Community Church. In a further show of goodwill, Mike is donating all proceeds from the event to Alton Main Street. Visitors are encourage to make donations and buy the art.
The music for the show will include Matt Taul, 316 Acoustic, Kenny Jamison, Agents of the Free, Half Pint and the Prairie Girls, Joshua Lee Baker, The Sandwich Band, Reneesa Drainer, The Lifehouse Band, Annalyse Crowdus, Dave Foraker and The Tim Danger Project.
