Chosen for Life Ministries is hosting its second, juried Fine Art Exhibit and Auction on  Thursday, October 11, 2018  at Redeemer Presbyterian, Lower Warehouse. This is our 2nd annual local show, with local artists, benefiting local foster and adoptive families. All guests' attendance and purchase of artwork supports the work CFLM is doing to equip our community to care well for orphaned and vulnerable children - giving guests a chance to be a part of sharing beauty in this community while adding beauty to their home! 

We would love for your business or organization to sponsor the event and join us in bringing our community together for a night of art and support for children! For more information about the event, you can visit !
