     The tenth annual “What’s So Good About Good Friday?” art show presents local artists’ work about Good Friday and their Christian faith. More than 25 artists will exhibit their creations that center on the power of Jesus’s crucifixion, death, and resurrection to accomplish something beautiful. The show will be held at Second Presbyterian Church, 404 N. Prairie Street, in downtown Bloomington, Friday, April 19, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. 
     The exhibit is organized by Art Circle of Bloomington-Normal, a faith-based group of artists and creative people, in conjunction with Second Presbyterian Church. 
     Artists will display paintings, drawings, watercolors, mixed media, computer generated art and sculptures on Good Friday. A reception with refreshments will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m., which will include artists talking informally about their work. Art will remain on display throughout Easter weekend.
     Kathy Stoner-Lasala, Transitional Minister/Head of Staff at Second Presbyterian Church. “We pray that ‘What’s So Good About Good Friday?’ will offer an experience of blessing and mercy to all who attend the exhibit, reception, and Tenebrae worship service.”
     Last year, more than 1,000 people viewed the work by artists who are professional artists, accomplished amateur artists and school children. 
     “For the Christ-follower, the cross isn’t the end of the story, it is the beginning of our new story. This show allows artists to shine their artistic light for Christ,” said Angel Ambrose, an artist and one of the Art Circle organizers. 
     The Good Friday Community Service will be at noon at Second Presbyterian on Friday, April 19. Second Presbyterian’s solemn Good Friday worship service begins at 8 p.m., after the artists’ reception. The thoughtful service features Bible readings with diminishing light, art, and music until the sanctuary is dark and utterly quiet. Sunday’s Sunrise Easter Service is at 6 a.m. Additional Easter Services are at 8 a.m., 9 a.m, and 10:30 a.m.. All are welcome.   
     Second Presbyterian is committed to helping people deepen their love for Christ and one another. Information about Second Presbyterian Church can be found at: www.secondpres.com.
