the beginning God created (Genesis 1:1). God is creator, God still
creates today, and He calls us to be creative. We honor our creative God
with the artistic work of our hands.
This year we invite artists to submit work that contemplates the many meanings and resonances of WILDERNESS in Scripture, in Christian thought, and in our society today. It is written in Isaiah 35:1
Open to artists working in all media. Entries must be your own original artwork. Artwork must be consistent to the show theme, although the link may be more obvious in your description than in the work itself. Each applicant may submit up to two works. Artwork must have sturdy wire across the back for hanging; limited space for three dimensional artwork is available. The St. Matthew Fine Arts Ministry reserves the right to reject work that is deemed inappropriate or which differs from the submitted image.
There is no entry fee nor does the Fine Arts Ministry keep a commission on any sales. Each artist may submit up to 2 works. Please submit your information by November 1, 2022 to allow for gallery signs to be made, but the artwork itself doesn't need to be complete at that time.
We are currently planning for the Opening Gala to be held on Saturday, November 12 from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. Mark your calendars, but keep in mind that plans may change.
