You are invited to an Asian American Church Women’s Art Festival at Logos Seminary (Mar. 6, 2010)

In marking International Women’s Day, AAWOL and Logos Evangelical Seminary are co-sponsoring the inaugural Asian American Church Women’s Art Festival (AACWAF). Out of the intensive course, “Culture and Church,” that I taught at Logos Evangelical Seminary in January, creative ideas began germinating. Following one of the key themes of the course, sustainable living and the role of women, the slogan, “When women change, the world changes” resurfaced. A resident artist student in the class, Yongyi Hou, who has done her Christian art exhibitions in China, Manila, and Europe, shared her vision to share her artwork to benefit AA church women’s leadership. As our conversation circle expanded, it gained a momentum and also a pianist — Edward Shaw volunteered to play his music at the event. By connecting rich resources of AA church communities, AACWAF was born. We deeply appreciate Tracy Lee’s work in graphics to produce our ideas into a postcard. All the women and men enthusiastically expressed their desire to participate in preparing refreshments from scratch, displaying arts, promoting books, playing Christian music, and exemplifying sustainable living for our sacred earth. AAWOL appreciates LES’ co-sponsorship in celebrating AA church women’s artistic expressions in connection with International Women’s Day that honors the legacies of women pioneers. All the proceeds from the event will go toward AAWOL initiatives that advance Asian American church women’s sacred leadership. – Dr. Young Lee Hertig, Director, ISAAC Southern California and AAWOL.

    Wow, if this event were in Northern California, I would definitely go this March to meet other AAC women artists. I have an Asian American Christian novel being published at the end of the year. Hope the festival will become an annual event!
