Works of Faith show goes ‘Up to the Mountain’

When artist Rollin Karg studied art from ancient cultures, he realized that many pieces reflected the artist’s faith. In 2005, Karg and his wife, Patricia, were inspired by these examples of faith-based art and decided to create an exhibit to showcase pieces with Christian influences and themes. Eleven years later, the Works of Faith art show has become not only an annual event for the gallery but a treasured Easter tradition for many visitors.
