This Perspectives Art Show is intended to be an opportunity for artists to dig deeply into the Scriptures and to have their God-given creativity flow out of what they find there. It is a space to glorify God through art, and it is a challenge to meditate on the Word of God around a certain theme and allow art to flow out of that experience.  Please note: this show is NOT for sharing previously made works of art, but rather the hope is to inspire a new creation!
All mediums will be accepted, but space is limited, so some size restrictions may apply.  Please contact us if you have questions.
The theme for this year is “Perspectives on the Journey”
How can we view our life journeys from the perspective of God and through the lens of Scripture?  What is God teaching us through the process of the journey?
We ask each artist to choose one of the ten passages of Scripture below that will serve as the foundation for their creativity. The passage should be a guide to you, but not dictate the product of your creativity. The passage will be connected to your art at the show.
Sometimes the journey is tiresome:
  • John 4:6  Jacob’s well was there; so Jesus, wearied as he was from his journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour.
Sometimes the journey is terrifying:
  • Psalm 23:4  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
  • Genesis 12:1Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.
Even though it is tiring and terrifying, He doesn’t fail to guide us:
  • Jeremiah 6:16 Thus says the LORD: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls….
  • Psalm 119:105  Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
  • Proverbs 3:5–6  Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. [6] In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
  • Judges 18:5–6  [5] And they said to him, “Inquire of God, please, that we may know whether the journey on which we are setting out will succeed.” [6] And the priest said to them, “Go in peace. The journey on which you go is under the eye of the LORD.”
  • Acts 17:27  God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.
  • Romans 5:3-4  We also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope. 
  • Proverbs 4:11-13  I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;  when you run, you will not stumble. Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.
  • Hebrews 11: 15-16  If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one.
The journey is never just about the arrival or the destination.  The journey, the process, the trail, the adventure itself is sometimes the point. I love this idea of digging into the journey that we are all on, moving forward in our walks of faith
Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions and comments.
