This year, like the last several years, the Artist Circle will host Reflections, a showcase featuring an art exhibit and literary journal. The title, and theme, of Reflections comes from the book of James, where we are told God’s Word is like a mirror.
While the general theme will remain Reflections, there is an added focus of The Changed Life to commemorate the 150th anniversary of The Moody Church. Artists who are considering submitting should feel free to have creative flexibility while exploring these themes.
The Visual Art Exhibit hopes to feature pieces across all forms of visual media, including drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. The Artist Circle wants to engage its audience in admiring the God-given talents of those within the church, but, more importantly, to point to the ultimate Creator and the life-changing power of His son, Jesus Christ.
The Literary Journal expects to present written pieces that vary from fiction to poetry, from drama to creative non-fiction. Through the Literary Journal, the Artist Circle aspires to display God’s glory through the writing talents He has given members of the church.
If you would like to submit to either the Visual Art Exhibit or the Literary Journal, submission requirements and forms can be found HERE. Submissions are due Sunday, March 9.
The Visual Art Exhibit will be presented in the lobby of The Moody Church April 23 though May 11. The Literary Journal will be available in the month of April. There will be an Artist Circle Gathering on April 27 that will highlight various pieces throughout the Exhibit, feature selected readings from the Journal, and allow artists to interact with the audience.
