Call for entries to Matters of Faith art exhibition

All artists are invited to participate in Matters of Faith, a curated exhibition of contemporary art that is interdisciplinary (open to all disciplines), interfaith (open to all, including those who aren’t explicitly involved in a faith tradition or community) and intergenerational (open to artists young and old).

Matters of Faith asks the question, “What might it mean to experience or express faith?” By asking what it might mean to experience or express faith, the art exhibition is also allowing for its exploration.

Artists who wish to participate are invited to email a (2-3 line) description of up to two pieces, including artwork label information as they want it represented in the exhibition venue (Title, Date, Media/Material, Dimensions), to [email protected] by Jan. 10. 

Artwork selected for inclusion within the context of the exhibition will be notified by Jan. 20 with further information regarding installation and deinstallation guidelines.

Sponsored by Boulder Creek United Methodist Church, this one-day exhibition is open to the public on Saturday, Feb. 10, from 10am-5pm.
