You are invited on Sunday, December 4, 2016 at 2:30 PM to the Masonic Philosophical Society for our next hosted discussion and study. Each month a different topic, ranging from philosophy and science to religion and metaphysics, is discussed and debated. This group, which is open to the public, is where non-members can learn more about Freemasonry, as well as meet local Freemasons.
December's topic will be conducted by Brother Olga Iventicheva on a study of Freemasonry: Are there Principles of Art that Apply to Freemasonry? After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow.
Artists and artisans may see creation as God, an expression of scenes envisioned on canvas or in stone, done in pleasure; they are placed for observation of the masses and for contemplative study. While we work, we look up to see the piece of art in the buildings that surround us. In a break from our routine we look at makers design to study "will" in play from the hands of artists. Did it make you think? Or emotionally react? Or simply enjoy? Art is "will" carried through the hands and tools of the artist. Masons are the ones with skills to express the word in building forms, they are artisans with words. Do the principles of art, and what makes "art" apply to the ritual of the Freemason? If so, how?

The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education. We further embrace the concept of a community environment, where ideas can be shared and debated in an open forum. From the seven liberal arts to the arcane, we seek to gain and to share the knowledge that is the legacy of mankind.
