Paul Oman to bring drawing ministry to Jamestown
He is an artistic pastor and will appear at The Arts Center on Aug. 30.
All are invited to a special art event at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30, at The Arts Center in Jamestown. The event is free and open to the public.
Paul Oman, artist and pastor, shares his Drawn to the Word artistic ministry with audiences ecumenically across the country. He served as a science teacher, then Lutheran pastor when, in 2011, he took up work as an artistic pastor full time.
Oman seeks to give new vision to God’s word by using the process of painting to captivate audiences in today's visually oriented culture.
Painting and drawing have been a part of Oman’s life since childhood. Receiving national and international recognition for his work in watercolor, he uses this gift to proclaim the Gospel in unique ways that impact lives and inspire mission. Oman works in many settings, including congregations, schools, universities, seminaries, camps, prisons, nonprofits and more. The larger-than-life-sized murals are painted with acrylics on stretched canvas.
Oman lives near Amery, Wisconsin, with his wife, Jana, and their children. His visit to Jamestown is made possible by the support of Atonement Lutheran Church, Immanuel Lutheran Church, the Trinity Lutheran Church Foundation and the St. John’s Lutheran Church Endowment Fund.
The Arts Center is located at 115 2nd St. SW.
