The Calvary Church Art Committee announces a call for entries for artists from the Calvary Church congregation to submit a work of art in response to a sermon or passage from the book of Matthew that has impacted their life.
Artists of all levels from emerging to established, 14 years and older, are encouraged to submit up to three entries in digital form. Submissions will be juried by the committee and a select number of works will be exhibited at the Calvary Church Gallery from February 12 – May 28. Those artists selected for the exhibition at the church will be notified and will need to drop their work off at an arranged date and time, and pick it up following the exhibition. Specific instructions will be provided, and work must be ready for installation.
There are no restrictions on medium or content for submissions. Artists may submit images of painting, drawing, fiber art, sculpture, photography, printmaking, digital art, assemblage, and/or mixed media. A maximum of one work per artist will be selected for inclusion in the exhibition.
Each artist should submit the following:
- a high resolution jpeg image for each submission
- title, medium, date, and size for each submission
- an artist statement of 200 words or less
- a verse from the book of Matthew for reference
The committee will accept submissions from January 1-22, 2023 by electronic means to email@example.com. Please fill out the provided form that includes the above.

Purpose – The purpose of the Art Committee is to promote the visual arts as a tool to support worship and teaching at Calvary Church. We also want to encourage the engagement of visual art that complements our faith, with members of the church and surrounding community.
Mission – The Art Committee seeks to support God’s work here at Calvary Church with the management of its permanent art collection and by sponsoring temporary displays of visual art in the church. Through the support of the church’s Statement of Vision and these tasks, the committee will help to create and maintain an aesthetic environment that will enhance the spiritual and community activities that take place in our facility.
