New Santa Monica Church Partners With Gallery For Artistic Exhibition Tonight:

Resonate, a new church community anchored in Santa Monica, will celebrate Easter week with a free, open-to-the-public arts event tonight, April 17 at the Jeanie Madsen Gallery at 1431 Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica.

Titled “Ritual and Relationship: Communion in Everyday Life,” the interactive experience will focus on the connecting power of rituals in relationship.

According to Resonate Lead Pastor David Cobia, the exhibition will explore rituals ranging from formal ceremonies (e.g., weddings, funerals, graduations, etc.) to such informal “habits” as a weekly beach volleyball game, Saturday morning breakfast with a friend, or a nightly bedtime story through a variety of creative media, including visual arts and music.

“On the night when Jesus followers around the world commemorate ‘Maundy Thursday,’ we will reflect on the depths and nuances of the Christian practice of Communion (the Lord’s Supper) and its connections to our daily lives and the rituals of our own relationships,” Cobia said, adding that Communion will be served to those wishing to partake.

The exhibition will feature acclaimed musical artist Bob Bennett, who has performed to sell-out crowds across the country on the strength of his deeply moving songwriting, masterful guitar work and distinctly resonant singing style.

In addition, Kate Peper, an accomplished painter and poet who has exhibited in some of California’s finest galleries, will create an interactive painting “live” during the event.

The exhibition is being curated by Jeanie Madsen, owner of the Jeanie Madsen Gallery (JMG).

JMG, a cutting edge, “outside-the-box” gallery that carries “fresh” and current art, is located on scenic Ocean Avenue overlooking the beach and the iconic Santa Monica Pier.

Doors to the exhibition will open at 7 pm Thursday, April 17, with the program beginning at 7:30 pm.
