West End United Methodist Church

West End Welcomes Dr. James He Qi

WEUMC is honored and excited to welcome world-renowned artist Dr. James He Qi for a special art show featuring 26 of his biblically inspired pieces of art.

On Saturday morning, September 17 from 9:00 AM – Noon, you are welcome to join us to see Dr. He Qi’s art and welcome him to Nashville as he tells us about his life story, his faith, and his unique perspective on Christian art. Dr. He Qi will give a presentation called “A Journey of My Christian Art Creation,” the tale of Dr. He Qi’s own journey of living through the Chinese Cultural Revolution in the 60’s and 70’s, when he found work painting pictures of Chairman Mao by day and pictures of the Madonna at night. Eventually, Dr. He Qi’s faith and religious art would precipitate his leaving China and his international recognition as a Christian artist with a uniquely global perspective. Dr. He Qi’s story is fascinating, and his art is phenomenal. You will be blessed by this opportunity so do not miss it!

Dr. He Qi’s art will also be available to view on Sunday morning, August 18, and he will be present during that morning if you would like to visit with him then as well. You will recognize some of his art because we feature it regularly on our bulletin covers for Sunday services.

This event is a joint project of the Spiritual Formation team and WEUMC’s Art Inclusion Committee. To learn more about Dr. He Qi, visit his website at https://www.heqiart.com/.

Our Saturday event is completely free of charge, but we would like to have plenty of refreshments and seats for everyone, so if you plan to join us, we request that you register your intent to attend below.
