Join us in a six week study as we work through five questions faced by artists who are believers, outlined below:
- 10/12 What is Christian art? (led by John Robertson, IMAGO Director)
- 10/19 What are my artistic boundaries as a Christian? (led by Eric Reed, IMAGO founder)
- 10/26 Has God called me to be an artist? (led by Natalie Aguilar, Leadership team)
- 11/02 Is the quality of my art important to God? (led by John Robertson)
- 11/09 What do I do when I’m not inspired? (led by Allison Fox, IMAGO Assistant Director)
- 11/16 Creative time where participants engage in art making and build off of prior classes. IMAGO will provide art supplies. (led by Allison Fox)

UPDATE: Each artist is permitted to submit up to three completed works for consideration.
The deadline is swiftly approaching! The deadline for submission of digital photos of the COMPLETED WORK and your artist’s statement is FEBRUARY 27th at 11:59pm. There will be no late entries this year, so please meet the deadline, or we won’t be able to consider your artwork for the show. Artists who are accepted into the show will be notified by email on March 1. Accepted artwork will need to be dropped off at the IMAGO meeting in room 408 on the evening of March 4th between 6:30 and 8 pm.
Here are some Artist Statement samples from last year’s show. Please use these as a guideline for submitting yours along with your completed piece. Please submit in word document and use Times New Roman 12 pt. type font.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
