Cloister Art Gallery


We are excited to have a place for you to learn about upcoming artists and learn the history of the Cloister Gallery and discover all kinds of interesting information about the art in and around the House of Hope Presbyterian Church.

During October join us in the Cloister Gallery as the Art Gallery features Joy Hartl, a Minnesota artist who, for more than a decade, began an intense study to help her unlock the subtle beauty of nature. Her works include flowers and still life paintings.

Plan to meet Joy at the Artist Reception in the Cloister Gallery on Sunday, October 15th after church service at 11:15 a.m.
