The Calvary Church Art Committee announces a call for artists who call Calvary home to submit a work of art in response to a passage in the book of Genesis 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 the digital images will be included in an online exhibition from February 6 – April 17, coinciding with the season of Lent.
The Art Committee will also select a number of works to be exhibited at Calvary Church during the same dates as the online exhibition (artists wishing to participate in only the online exhibition may indicate so on their entry). 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. 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. Submissions must be jpegs, and a minimum size of 8” x 10” at 300dpi.
Each artist should also include a title, medium, date, and size for each submission, as well as an artist statement of 200 words or less and a verse for reference.
The committee will accept submissions from January 9-23 by electronic means at firstname.lastname@example.org, mentioning Art Committee in the subject line.
