The Inness Collection
Our church is proud to be the home of George Inness, Jr.'s paintings. Our collection spans paintings of old Florida to highly renowned works that hung in the Louvre for thirty years. George, Jr. grew up in the shadow of his father, George, Sr. who was considered the first great American landscape artist. George, Jr., with the support of his wife, Julia, came into his own after his beloved father's death. The paintings show an artist's love of nature and spirituality. Visitors to our church noted how the famous “Inness greens” come to life in our sanctuary.
We hope you’ll visit us and allow us to showcase the largest single collection of George Inness Jr.'s paintings anywhere. For more information on the work of Mr. Inness click HERE.
The Collection Temporarily Moved …. Will Return Soon
Because of our sink hole issues, the paintings are temporarily in protective storage and are not available for viewing right now. The paintings will be available for viewing soon as our rebuilding is nearing completion. Until we reopen the paintings are secure in climate-controlled storage. We will let residents of Tarpon Springs and surrounding communities know when the paintings are available for tours once more. We appreciate your interest in these wonderful works of fine art and look forward to sharing the joy they bring in the near future.
