NEW ARTWORK IN THE CHURCH

The Twelve Apostles by De Vigne Courtright

Hanging on the East wall, to the right of the altar, is our new painting which was donated to St. Joseph the Worker. The theme of twelve is encompassed in the painting, hence the name of The Twelve Apostles. There are twelve pieces of palm stems throughout the painting on the edges, in the center around the circular piece that is holding a silver Byzantine cross there are 12 rosary beads. The four large palm leaves each have ginger flowers and bird of paradise flowers placed on them and then painted. The rich earthy tones of gold and brown match the interior of our church completely. This is a welcome addition to our environment.  Artist and Father

The artist, De Vigne Courtright, has spent the last 25 years developing and fine-tuning his signature style, which he terms, "Nature Assemblage." since nature commands this medium, each work is a colorfully painted one-of-a kind centerpiece, inspired by only using plant life indigenous to the West Coast of North America. De Vigne preserves and places each flora element until  his desired design is achieved and then he paints the foliage, creating harmony between art and nature. Quality is the hallmark of De Vigne's craft and the results are serious dramatic works of art, framed in plexiglass boxes providing continuous pleasure, bringing the outdoors inside.
