The Arts

We believe the arts are an avenue to the sacred. Our permanent art collection challenges, comforts and inspires, with exhibits throughout the program year. Our extraordinary music program, Literary Witnesses series and other offerings bring the arts into daily life at Plymouth.

Members Art Show

April 2–June 11, 2023

On Saturday, April 1, 2023, the Gallery Committee will install the 2023 Members Art Show. You are invited to show your work—painting, drawing, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, photography, printmaking, other—in the Conn Gallery.

The decision of what will be exhibited will be based, in part, on which works show well together and how many pieces are offered. No one is turned away, but there is a limit of 2 pieces per member.

Information about the show and an artist’s agreement is available at the link below. Please feel free to share this information with other members you know who may be interested.

Drop-off for your work is scheduled for the following times. Please review the instructions (in the information/agreement link) about identifying and dropping off your work. Please bring a copy of the signed agreement with you when you drop off your work. If one of these times is not convenient for you, please contact Carolyn Brunelle for alternate arrangements. Please do not bring work to the church without making prior arrangements.

  • Thursday, March 23, 9 a.m.–noon
  • Friday, March 24, 9 a.m.–noon
  • Saturday, March 25, 9 a.m.–noon

An Artists Reception will be held on Sunday, April 23, after the 11 a.m. worship service. The Members Show is a wonderful Plymouth tradition. Please consider participating; we look forward to hearing from you!

Theater 45°

Plymouth is home to a professional theater group and produces many plays, readings and events throughout the year.

The Purpose of Theater 45° is to use the theatrical experience to deepen the many facets of being human. We intend to present stories that engage the spiritual side of the human person regardless of — but not ignoring — religious experience. These stories are rooted in questions and not answers. As a community of storytellers and story-receivers, we strive to give an experience of collaboration, intersectionality, and valuing and honoring the many voices that get pushed to the margins. We will present stories that are meant to nurture transformation and deepen how we navigate our encounters with those that we may consider to be others.


Plymouth’s extraordinary music program is under the direction of the internationally renowned Phillip Brunelle. Learn more.

Literary Witnesses


Plymouth is home to magnificent embroideries. These huge artworks were designed by British artist Pauline Baynes and created by The Needlers, a multi-generational fellowship group, active at Plymouth for more than 40 years.
