In case you missed the announcement, the theme of this year’s show is Redemption. Per Merriam-Webster, redemption is the act of making something better or more acceptable; the act of exchanging something for money, an award, etc,; or in reference to theology, the act of being saved from sin or evil. Artwork submitted for the 2015 show should revolve around the artist’s interpretation of redemption.

For further inspiration in regards to redemption, listen to Eric Reed’s lesson on redemption from our November meeting here.

Submissions should be emailed to curator2015@imagohouston.org. Feel free to join the Facebook group at this link for helpful hints and info about the show if you plan to submit. Anyone needing critique assistance can post in the Facebook group, and if there are any questions about submission, please direct them to the curator2015 email address above.

2011 ECHOS Art Show – Submission Information

Calling on all artists including musicians, painters, poets, actors, designers, photographers, and other artistic interests from the student to the professional!

This year’s theme is ECHOS. The idea is simply to allow the Word of God to “echo” back from the Artist to the congregation at Houston’s First Baptist Church through the medium of the Arts.  Each piece of visual, musical, literary or performance art will serve as a restatement, reminder, and/or reinforcement of what members of IMAGO experienced during any of the 2010 sermons at Houston’s First Baptist Church.  ECHOS will run from April 10th through Easter Sunday (April 24th).

If you are interested in participating in the ECHOS Art show, we have all the information you will need to enter. For starters, you will first need to view the
2011 ECHOS Art Show Submission Guidelines.

For questions or concerns you might have about submissions, feel free to email Eric Hartley, Echos Curator.
