Wisconsin-based artist and pastor Paul Oman will visit the Franciscan Spirituality Center on Saturday, March 18, for a special event, Drawn to the Word: Seeing the Bible Story Come to Life Before Your Eyes.
Oman will journey through Lenten texts from the Gospel of Luke as he paints a large mural before an audience, sharing the stories not only visually and artistically but also scripturally and musically.
People of all faith traditions are welcome.
Oman was serving as a science teacher and then Lutheran pastor when, in 2011, he took up work as an artistic pastor full time. He says he “seeks to give new vision to God’s Word by using the process of painting to captivate audiences in our visually oriented culture.”
Oman lives near Amery, Wis., with his wife and three children. Highly proficient in both watercolor and acrylic mediums, Oman has earned numerous awards for his work over the years. Learn more about him at www.paulomanfineart.com.
Drawn to the Word will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the center, 920 Market St. Cost is $50, and lunch is included. To register, call 608-791-5295 or go to www.fscenter.org.
