Each October, the Redlands United Church of Christ holds Art, for Heaven’s Sake! to support art in the community.
Originally, the show was intended as a fundraiser showcasing local talent. Church members held the first event in a private home. Five local
artists showed their work. This year’s show will accommodate over seventy artists.
Although most selected artists are local, over the years, the reputation of the show has spread. Artists from all over the western states submit their art for jurying into the show. These submissions are juried to ensure a selection fine art representing a wide range of media. Guests can purchase art at the show.
The art show committee has added a new feature this year. Crafters will sell their hand-made wares at the Mosaic Hall Art Craft Boutique.
In addition, the festival hosts musicians from all over Southern California. Saturday afternoon, a special music event takes place featuring two jazz quintets made up of amazing musicians from the Los Angeles jazz scene. Saturday evening a well-known jazz singer from the LA area will perform.
