If you can’t make the caroling, there’s still plenty of time to explore, discover and walk through the twelve participating Village of Barrington stores to experience the Christmas Art Walk which runs through December 24, 2013.

Twelve Artists have created original commissioned pieces depicting the Biblical Story of Christmas. Each piece tells the story through the actions of the characters at that point of the story inspiring viewers to remember the true Gift of Christmas.

Here are the artists and the locations where you will find their work…

Stop 3 – Egg Harbor Cafe

“As an artist and portrait painter, God gifted me to creatively articulate, through my portraits, an emotional expression of the artists/musicians who have written and performed original songs that have touched my heart and effected my life.  To honor these musicians, and in collaboration with these musicians, the portraits created raise funding for those in need.”

Marsha English is a self taught artist working in such medias as paint, photography, fabric work, crafts, and paper sculpturing to name a few. “God gave me a ton of imagination and lots of creativity.

Artists’ Biblical Depiction for the Christmas Art Walk

Stop 5 – Acacia Organics
100 E. Station Street

“As an artist I am blessed to see the awesome hand of the ultimate Creator every where. I often feel like a child viewing the world for the first time! My life, a journey is always changing. Like a diamond in the rough starts off as a rock. I am chiseled, ground and polished to be able to co-create and shined through with art. I am excited to continue and create!”

Artists’ Biblical Depiction for the Christmas Art Walk

Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem – Luke 2:4-6

Christmas Art Walk - Bridget MantasootBridget Mantasoot

Stop 7 – Cook Street Coffee
100 E. Station Street

“My passion is to move others, pointing to the forgotten details in life and the beauty of the overlooked.  I am interested in the lives of forgotten women and children, finding beauty in unexpected places, and juxtaposing things that seem to oppose each other.  It is important to me that I learn, experience, explore, and play… that I thrive.”

Artists’ Biblical Depiction for the Christmas Art Walk

The birth of Jesus, the gift of Christmas – Luke 2:7

“And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger…”

Stop 8 – Mia Sorella
104 S. Cook Street in Barrington

“God’s creation is all around us, and yet we seldom take notice of the harmony these God-given elements provide in infinite variety and proportions. My goal with each painting is to speak the truth and to transcribe the beautiful. It’s in these moments of creating I feel His pleasure and purpose in my life.”

Christmas Art Walk - Patrick RaymondPatrick Raymond

Stop 10 – Susan McConnell Photography
110 E. Main Street in Barrington

“The first thing we learn about God in the Bible is that God creates. The first thing we learn about humans in the Bible is that we are made in God’s image. Therefore it follows, I gather, that humans were and are created to create! Because the notion of ‘art’ is so intimidating to so many of us in our culture, our God-given nature as creators should be liberating news and an invitation.”

Artists’ Biblical Depiction for the Christmas Art Walk

MYHRR – Matthew 2:11

“And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.”

“My soul is seized by the wonders of provocative earth…From the breadth of the skies to the depths of the seas.If, in dipping my brush, I might expose what seems concealedthe majesty of it all, it is not I, but the Creator still. If one peaceful moment beckons belief and a place to imagine a haven of rest,then I have done what I must do.”

Artists’ Biblical Depiction for the Christmas Art Walk

FRANKINCENSE – Matthew 2:11

Stop 12 – MJ Miller Jewelers
123 W. Main Street in Barrington

“As a photographer I love to travel to different places and capture the essence that only exists in that space. My favorite fine art photography is created in Paris, whose history never ceases to dish up new views, no matter how many times I work there. The photograph I have chosen for this exhibit was created in the exquisite Notre Dame Cathedral.”
