Chapel Art Gallery

A small gallery open to the public as well as church members. Past exhibits have included Racine Arts Council community art projects, congregation artist retrospectives, and Underground Railroad Quilt Collaboration with The Mahogany Gallery of Racine.

Upcoming exhibit:  Stations of the Cross, in conjunction with the Racine Symphony's April 7 - 7:30 p.m. performance of Haydn's meditative masterpiece, "The Seven Last Words of Christ." This exhibit is interactive, inviting the viewer's participation.

The summer of 2019, RAC partnered with First Presbyterian Church and featured the Summer Educational Program of HALO led by Lauren Sommers, Director of Education & Art. The children wrote a play based on the 50th Anniversary pedal car "Sun Ray" by sculptor, Bill Reid.

The play and their artwork were presented on the Ihrman Hall Stage, August 23, 2019 in front of an audience of 60 people. The smiles on their faces when they took a bow, told a new story for them of confidence, hard work, creativity and appreciation.

In June of 2019, the Chapel Art Gallery featured artists from ages six to eighty-eight!
