RICHMOND — “Art…A Spiritual Gift” is inviting Kentucky artists to submit original artwork for this first annual juried exhibit of spiritual art at Richmond’s Episcopal Church of Our Saviour

Richard Burden, the church’s pastor, “and we seek to encourage local and regional artists to share their gifts for visual art for building up of the spiritual life of Madison County.”
