Pasadena Art Exhibit – by Church of Scientology

Church of Scientology of Pasadena welcomes the community for second art show in a series hosted in future church home.

The Church of Scientology of Pasadena hosted an art exhibit in the historic Braley Building in Old Town Pasadena last week, providing a venue for local artists to display their work to the community.  The President of the Church of Scientology of Pasadena, Ms. Eden Stein, was joined by the President of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce in welcoming the artists and guests.

This was the second time the Pasadena Church transformed its future home at 35 S. Raymond Ave into an exhibition space for artists. In April, the Church hosted the first exhibition and its popularity brought about this second show of sculpture, paintings and photography.

The exhibit included the color darkroom prints of Christine Caldwell and the “Lost World” series of paintings by William Silver whose work as a “background artist” has appeared in numerous animated Disney features. Other artists showing their work were Gavin Scott, Alex Sadoyan, Minas and Samuel Halaj, Marina K Rehrmann and Ashot Khudaverdyan.

“In addition to the services we provide our parishioners, we feel it is our responsibility to help improve the quality of life in our city in any way we can,” said Ms. Stein.  “L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of Scientology, once described art as ‘the soul food of all people.’  By displaying the work of local artists in these exhibits we hope not only to give them the opportunity to showcase their talent, but also to help them encourage and inspire others to pursue their creative dreams.”

The Scientology Church in Pasadena is currently located at 1277 E. Colorado Blvd.  The Old Town property was acquired to accommodate the growing congregation.  For more information visit the Church of Scientology of Pasadena web site.
