Nashville is a creative town, with many Music City residents making a living in the arts. While music is the most obvious example of that, there are also many writers, visual artists and other creative types who use their talents to create a career. Here at TVC, we make a concerted effort to help these creative individuals connect, share their talents, celebrate the work of others and gain support for the unique challenges of these professions.

From art shows and Creative Arts Potlucks to "TVC Arts Presents" special events, there's something for everyone. And you don’t need to be a professional artist – or even an amateur one! – to participate. Anyone interested in exploring issues of faith and creativity are welcome.

Art Shows

The Village Chapel community is a diverse and talented collection of individuals, many of whom are artists. The Living room provides an inviting canvas, serving as a seasonal gallery to showcase the eclectic talents of creatives who call TVC home.

See an archive of past TVC art shows here.

TVC Art Shows Mission Statement

In a continued effort to integrate the aspects of a flourishing life, we believe artists have the opportunity to contribute a visual narrative, expressing a thoughtful theology of beauty.  The art shows we present exist to:

  • Glorify God, support the disciplined efforts of artists, and display works for the benefit and enjoyment of our community
  • Inspire and express a sense of awe, wonder, astonishment, and watchfulness
  • Give voice through visual medium to those who pursue a long obedience, in the same direction

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. - Philippians 4:8

Creative Arts Potluck

Find some inspiration at the next Creative Arts Potluck on Friday, April 5, at 6 pm in the Living Room at TVC Main. Bring a dish to share and hear Julia Parobek talk about her new show, The Botanical Zoo. We’ll also enjoy some original music compositions by Celtic artist Karen Ballew. Childcare is available for Nursery and Preschool (older kids are welcome at the event). More info in this week's bulletin feature.


Julia Parobek Art Opening

Stop by the Living Room after any service on Sunday, March 31, for a reception to celebrate the opening of Julia Parobek’s new show, The Botanical Zoo, in the TVC Gallery (aka the Living Room at TVC Main). Grab a cup of coffee, take in the artwork and meet the artist. With her art, Parobek celebrates the joy of seasons and events and the delicate details of creation. She is very excited to share the current tenants of her zoo, and hopes that you fall in love with them the way she has! More info in this week's bulletin feature.
