Midtown Mosaic Artist Profile: Michelle Hoogveld

Michelle_Hoogveld_PhotoMichelle Hoogveld is best known for her distinctive use of mixed media, whose work explores the relational boundaries of mediums in a figurative yet abstract fashion.

“My approach to painting is intuitive, yet intentional, utilizing mediums such as oil paint, spray, images and found objects to emphasize the realistic qualities of my subjects, but also to experiment with different methods of layering and abstraction. Drawing upon inspiration from a variety of sources, my aim is to tell a story, centering on personal interactions, habitual routines, the places we encounter and the connections we form with others.”

Start Up Sunday: September 7th 2014

June 08

Welcome Back!

Start-up Sunday is September 7, when we welcome the return of the summer exiles who have been wandering in dry sunny places, and also newcomers who have been searching for a spiritual home.  We will rev the engines of our fall programs and launch a new season of mission and ministry.

Radio Nights: Lettice and Lovage

5bivqgseSt. Stephen’s Radio Nights presents Lettice and Lovage by Peter Schaffer

Lettice and Loveage is a delightful comic romp from the brilliant Peter Schaffer who gave us Equus and Amadeus. Written as a vehicle for Dame Maggie Smith, the Tony Award winning play tells the story of Lettice Douffet the tour guide of Fustian House.

Deciding that the real history of the hall is boring, Lettice creates a much more interesting story to tell tourists only to be fired for her efforts by Lotte Schoen from Preservation Trust.

The connection between the two women and architecture is only just beginning… The play will feature Maureen Jones and Karen Johnson Diamond, and will be directed by Trevor Rueger. Performance May 9, at 7:30pm in the Church. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door.
