Hundreds of members of the LCANZ family – from small children to the elderly – shared their creative talents through the Living Water Churchwide Simultaneous Art Exhibition last month.

There were 14 exhibitions held across Australia, with five in South Australia, three in Queensland, while Western Australia and New South Wales hosted two each and there was one each in Victoria and the Northern Territory. Some exhibitions were staged purely for online viewing due to COVID-19 restrictions, while others were able to open to in-person visitors. The members of Immanuel Lutheran Church North Adelaide even took their exhibition to their local streets!

All addressing the theme ‘Living Water’, the exhibitions were put on by congregations, Lutheran schools and early learning centres, while members of aged-care communities also took part. The event, which was deferred from last year because of the pandemic, welcomed artists of ‘all ages, stages and media’ and was staged by the Commission on Worship’s Visual Arts Working Group.
