The Balcony Gallery @ Peace Lutheran Church

Through our visual and liturgical art program, we are broadening our vision of the Christian faith and engaging/welcoming our Salem community. In the past year, the Visual and Liturgical Art Team has sponsored gallery and church tours, established the Balcony Gallery, organized exhibits and art talks. Thanks to Peace members and friends--especially Joel Nickel--we are expanding this new ministry.

Please consider making a donation for gallery costs, honoraria for artists, and art transport. Make tax-deductible gifts to Peace Lutheran Church, with "Visual & Liturgical Art" in the check memo line. Thank you!

Our balcony gallery is open Sunday mornings and other days or evenings upon request. 
To arrange a free tour, call the church office at (503)362-8500.


November 11 - December 16, 2018


Combining biblical imagery and traditional Japanese folk art (mingei), Sadao Watanabe, a Japanese printmaker in the 20th century, depicts the Christian gospel in a Japanese context using crumpled wet mulberry paper mixed with traditional pigments. Thank you to Joel Nickel, Salem artist, for planning the exhibit, and for presenting a Watanabe Art Talk on November 25th at 10:45am at Peace Lutheran Church.
