The Church of Art

Loren Naji's Satellite Gallery Closes it's Hatch to Open

The Church of Art.

Come Join Us to Worship Creativity!

Satellite Gallery went beyond the boundaries of our galaxy, with installations produced by emerging and established creative art explorers. It was a fantastic journey orbiting Cleveland and the Waterloo Art scene in our spaceship of art. The spaceship has landed and closed its hatch to be transformed into something beyond space. It is now The Church of Art, where creative thinking is revered above all.

The Church of Art is more than a gallery space. It is also the name of a group and an ideology. Loren Naji has gathered a clergy of art innovators who will work together, as a team, on public and underground projects, while also co-curating unconventional exhibits in this re-invented art space. The Church of Art (Joshua Bentley, Loren Naji, Tina Ripley and Megan Schimmoeller) is committed to showing and producing highly creative, edgy art that breaks barriers in today’s stagnant art scene. We are dismissing established methods of choosing artists based on education, resumes and artspeak. We worship art that rises above convention and answers the question “What’s Next?” Our ideology takes art seriously and reveres creative thinking as holy, enjoyable and fun.

Let Us Play!

The Church of Art Events:

Grand Opening: Resurrection-The Church of Art Invitational Saturday June 30th, during Waterloo Arts Fest. Artists are invited to create permanent art on the church gallery walls as a backdrop for all future exhibits.

CAN’T Triennial at Rooms to Let Sat/Sun, July 28 & 29th A salon style un-juried show for the many disappointed artists that were rejected from FRONT International and The CAN Triennial. Artists “CAN’T” be rejected from this show! Unlike the others, we are truly representing the artists of Cleveland.

In the works…. a weekly podcast, a huge public art piece and a secret underground art show.
