Call-Out For Entries Faith in Art Open Summer Exhibition 2024

Faith in Art 2024 | 28 July – 25 August 2024 

Leigh Road Baptist Church Welcome Area internal windows, Marguerite Drive, Leigh-on-Sea SS9 1NN.

As part of summer Church Leigh Road Baptist Church is aiming to host a ‘Faith in Art’ Open Submission Summer Exhibition in the church windows across late July and August.

The show makes space for and welcomes submissions from all; established local artists, emerging talent, schools and hobbyists of all ages.

We want to showcase a breadth and diversity of work using acrylics, oils, watercolours, gouache, pen and ink, crayon, photography, spray can, airbrush, pastels and mixed media. Artists can submit one artwork in 2D to a maximum size of A3.

Photos of artwork should be submitted via the form linked below by midnight on Sunday 21 July 2024.

The Theme: Faith in Art

The Bible and Christianity have long been an inspiration for artists from Michelangelo and Rembrandt to 21 century contemporary artists. This new exciting exhibition seeks to invite artists to interpret, ask questions, raise doubts, tell of the hope, depict stories of the Bible in a creative way, based on their own faith, culture and experience.

We hope to create a richer dialogue through arts about the big questions of life and faith.
