Beauty From Ashes


Not forgotten… Commemorating With Hope

On Sept. 8th, 2020, traumatic, life-altering fires swept through the towns of Ashland, Talent, and Phoenix, Oregon, in a catastrophic event known as the Almeda Fire. A bit further north, the Obenchain fires burned in Eagle Point and Trail. Over 2,400 homes were lost, families and individuals and life works in businesses were displaced or lost. Recovery has been a challenge.

You, the survivors, are not forgotten. Inspired by the beautiful passage from Isaiah 61, Masterpiece Christian Fine Arts shares its Beauty From Ashes live art exhibit at Empowered Life Church in Talent, Oregon.  This church survived the fire without damage when everything around it in every direction burned.

On Wednesday, Sept. 8th, come for the art and artist reception at 6:00 p.m. and the commemorative service at 7:00 pm, or visit the exhibit in person from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on the 9th and 10th. Sixteen artists have contributed to this compelling remembrance of faith, hope, and love.  Including creations with beautiful repurposed textiles. Come and give/receive comfort and hope.
