Local Artists Featured at Arts in the Village

Music artists Jenny & Tyler perform while artist William Butler completes a live painting.

Hundreds of people from Walnut Creek Church and the Des Moines community experienced an evening of art, music and fellowship during Arts in the Village on May 30. The event, which was free and open to the public, featured music from special guests Jenny & Tyler, live art from William Butler and displays from several local artists.

“I liked the diversity of people who came,” said Sara Burrier, a Des Moines illustrator whose work was featured at the event. “I also liked the concept of it being an outreach event and that it was about Christ. It made it easy to talk about my art because it relates to Christ.”

In addition to Burrier, other featured artists included Candace Camling, Bryan Coons, Austin Day, Graham Gardner, Nic McDougal, Mhuka Designs (Ginger Meadows), Tia Rodemeyer and Amy Wood Thomas.
