Beauty in Simplicity–Dan Ford Paintings
Jul 3 @ 10:00 am – Aug 1 @ 5:00 pm
Beauty in Simplicity--Dan Ford Paintings @ Patmos Art Center |  |  |

Dan Ford’s studio practice blends his love of photography and painting, both of which have fascinated him since childhood. Similar to photography, Dan’s paintings capture a moment in time where color and light interact to create a scene infused with tranquility. The directness of Dan’s approach through oil painting is achieved by a singleness of eye or simplicity. Speaking directly from  his heart, the work embodies beauty, peace, and simplicity.
Exhibit open Monday – Saturday 10 am-5 pm (except Wednesdays) & following Sunday Eucharist

COLLECT FOR THE FEAST OF ST. JAMES
Almighty ever-living God,
who consecrated the first fruits of your Apostles
by the blood of Saint James,
grant, we pray,
that your Church may be strengthened by his confession of faith
and constantly sustained by his protection.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
