On Friday, April 11 the gallery was pleased to announce that So Young Lee (Tiffany Lee) won honorable Mention for her pencil drawing, “Self Portrait.”  The judges wrote, “Though the composition and means of execution are simple, this graphite portrait is no less striking for it. A sense of honesty and presence is found in the subject, which successfully combines the organic structures of the human face, and the underling mechanical grid and notations. Two worlds often completely separate are brought together to give us an idea of the person behind the portrait.”

Congratulations Tiffany and each UFCA Student

for your Art Accomplishments!

UFCA Spring Gala a Success!

On Friday, April  11th over 140 UFCA  families, friends,  and faculty gathered at Maggianno’s Italian Restaurant for our Annual Spring Gala.

Hendricks  Automotive Group was our corporate sponsor for the evening and provided a number of items for the auction.  The evening was highlighted by a wonderful dinner, a silent auction with over 60 items, and a live auction with over 40 items.  In between times of fellowship around the tables, the families enjoyed an exciting time of competitive bidding.

The evening was a great success and we thank everyone who helped advance the programs of United Faith Christian Academy.

The movie showing will take place at The Fullwood Theater, 100 McDowell Street East Matthews, NC 28105 on April 16-18th. The event is a free event and will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. each evening.
