The Work of Our Hands is a non-profit organization founded in 2000 by Bishop Frank K. Allan, retired Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. A passionate believer in the spiritual benefits of rediscovering one’s imagination and creative gifts, Bishop Allan sought to build an organization to support art-oriented programs throughout metro Atlanta that served and encouraged people from all walks of life. Proceeds from the show benefit the art programs at Emmaus House (www.emmaushouse.org), which serves underprivileged individuals and families in the Peoplestown community, Holy Comforter Friendship Center (http://holycomforter.episcopalatlanta.org/Content/Arts_Program.asp), which serves people with mental and physical disabilities in Reynoldstown, and Church of the Common Ground (www.commongroundatl.com), a “church without walls” serving the homeless in downtown Atlanta.
“The Work of Our Hands Artists’ Market is a major source of funding for these programs as well as a showcase for the creative spirit which crosses all boundaries and walks of life,” states Bishop Allan.
