Lynnhurst & the Arts

Lynnhurst Congregational Church has a long and proud history of supporting and promoting the Arts!  Our members and friends participate in many artistic endeavors from drawing classes and art exhibits in the Lynnhurst Gallery, to singing in the choir or playing in one or more of Lynnhurst’s many musical groups ranging from Folk and Bluegrass to String Quartets and Chamber music. To find out more about Music and Arts at Lynnhurst, contact church.office@lynnhurstucc.org and be sure to follow us on Facebook!


Lynnhurst Gallery 

Lynnhurst is proud to have the opportunity to display the work of many local and nationally-shown artists. Lynnhurst’s art gallery, located in the Fellowship Hall, is a beautiful showcase for a wide variety of art pieces, including sculpture, paintings, photography, installations, fabric art and 3-dimensional constructions. The exhibits typically run for two months. The artist will typically provide a walk-through and answers questions when their show opens.

Nurturing Absurdity: 100 Drawings by Britta DeRemee Taracks

BrittaDeRemeeTaracks imageBrita DeRemee Taracks is a Minneapolis based artist and interior designer. She has a BA from Gustavus Adolphus College and studied with the Cleveland Institute of Art in Lacoste, France. She has shown paintings at the local 50 Artists on 50th and is co- creator of a new liturgical art movement at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.  For over 25 years Brita has shared her passion for design by helping people create beautiful homes through her business Mux Interior Design. She and her husband Doug have launched three fine sons.


Artist Statement: These 100 drawings have a lot to do with absurdity. Turtles don’t wear pants, ducks don’t skate and fish don’t smoke. A serendipitous meeting put me up to the challenge of creating these 100 drawings in 100 days, which I shared as daily posts on Instagram and Facebook. As I sat down to draw each night, an idea would just show up, usually of an animal or inanimate object doing something it can’t do. As I sketched, I wore the subject’s expression on my face and felt its gesture in my own body -- and often giggled as the image appeared on the paper. Drawing was bringing an absurdity to life.
