Calling all Artists!
Vision: All ages, skill levels, and mediums are welcome! We’re inviting everybody in the church to create and submit pieces of original artwork that reflect resurrection imagery.
Artwork may possibly be shared with the congregation during a service, or shared within the context of a small group setting.
Types of artwork that you can submit: Two-dimensional artwork on canvas, paper, wood, etc., three-dimensional sculpture of wood, metal, clay, etc., framed poem or spiral bound short story.
Entry Limit: Unlimited
Deadline for submission: Thursday, March 14
No submissions can be accepted after Thursday, March 14 @ 4pm.
It takes time for our volunteers to prepare, arrange, and hang artwork; they need to have all artwork submissions in hand to design the exhibit.
Where to bring art: Drop off finished artwork at the church office anytime before the deadline, between Monday-Thursday 9-4pm.
When will it be displayed? Artwork for The Graves to Gardens Exhibit will be displayed in the Fireside Cafe from March 31st to June 30th, 2024.
All entries must meet the following requirements:
- Relates to imagery of resurrection
- Be permanently labeled (somewhere hidden, like on the back) with your name and phone number
- Be ready to hang (for 2-dimensional work). Must have securely-attached hardware, like a wire stretched between two eyelet screws. If your work is on foamcore, Hillcrest will make hangers on the back for you.
- Have a signed Artist Release Form
- Have an Art Entry Sheet taped to the front of your submission
- Have an Artist Statement, 150 words or less, printed and taped to the back of your artwork
- A copy of your Artist Statement emailed to Mary Margaret Brotherton
by March 14, 2024, by 4pm.
- Dropped off at the church office before 4pm, March 14th, 2024.
Notice: Hillcrest Church staff reserves the right to not display any submission that:
- Is not submitted on time or does not meet all of the submission requirements: signed artist release form, art entry sheet, artist statement, or any artwork that is not ready to hang/display.
- Contradict or misrepresent Hillcrest Church’s values to Love God, Grow Together, Care for the World (for example, do not include: symbols of political or other organizational affiliation, profanity, hate, violence, sexually explicit or suggestive material.)
- May potentially fall apart, break, or disintegrate over the course of the display. This includes frames that are not sturdy enough to handle the duration of the sermon series.
Please note that Hillcrest Church serves a wide audience that includes children and people who have experienced trauma and are in recovery.
