Have You Seen The Grove’s New Website?


[F]or the past eleven years, I have led a ministry called The Grove Center for the Arts & Media. I have the incredible privilege of working with a lot of creative and amazing artists: writers, filmmakers, musicians, singer-songwriters, visual artists of all kinds, poets, dancers, photographers and just about every kind of artist imaginable. The mission of The Grove is to cultivate the spiritual growth and creative work of artists. We do this through Grove Gatherings, Getaways, and Generosity.

Here on Art, Life & Faith, I haven’t told you much about The Grove because I wanted to wait until I could show you in a visually compelling way what our ministry with artists is all about. So now, ta-dah…I’d like to invite you to visit our brand new website. I’d love your thoughts and feedback. If you really like it, I’d like to ask you to consider sharing it on Facebook, Twitter, your blog…whatever social media sites you favor. Read on…

Designed to reflect our simple ministry focus of Grove Gatherings, Getaways, & Generosity, you’ll find easy navigation that reflects our work of cultivating the spiritual growth and creative work of artists.

On the new Grove website, you can…

Our new site is photo-rich with dozens of pictures of our Grove property, Gatherings, Getaways and our artist community here in Southern California. We will also provide regular updates through our Grove Facebook Page. We plan on offering you new resources and support as an artist in the days ahead.

I hope you’ll stop by soon and give us a visit. Let me know what you think of the new site and how we can serve you.

If you like, you can Tweet This now: Visit The Grove Center for the Arts & Media new website. They cultivate the spiritual growth & creative work of artists. (Thanks for sharing!)

    for the most part, a nice clean site. one quibble, however: the green ‘Grove’ logo on green(ish) images is difficult to read (as is the white text – too thin), and said logo is also somewhat pixellated with an odd white ‘halo’ – everywhere. you might consider screening the text to separate it more from the background. the logotype IS an issue though…the logotype and slogan really only work visually on the home and staff pages.

      I thoroughly agree and thus, the limitations of using a template site. I did press squarespace.com on this issue…you would think that a photo-designed site would give you flexibility with a simple toggle to turn logos/text on or off. This is iteration #1…we need to search for more photos that don’t compete with the logo/text…thanks for your eye and feedback Edward.
