Humanity is an amazing species!
From individuals who do world-changing things, to those who quietly minister daily to touch lives uncared about by others, we are each extraordinary in our own way. We read of those who went before us, and are ourselves immersed in a veritable sea of awe-inspiring beings today. We invited artists to share figurative work of exceptional quality that celebrates one or more of those “great spirits,” alive or gone forward, known by all or known by few.

Most parents desire to instill a sense of the sacred, an awareness of God in their children, no matter with what name they address the Deity: Ya_eh, Allah, the Great Spirit, Mother Earth, Abba, God.
Whether through a Faith Tradition with ancient roots or a very personal, singular approach, imparting a spiritual awareness is most often an important component in parenting. This exhibit offers an opportunity for children to think about this and to share their vision and an opportunity for parents to gain insight about their children’s deepening spirituality.

. . . an exhibit of sculpture and photography
A space…sides, a ceiling/roof, a floor/ground…can engender a mood and draw us into the spirit it generates. Sometimes cavernous, sometimes small and tight, certain places help move us deep inside ourselves; others open our being to the vastness of the universe; genuinely spiritual places often do both.
We have invited artists to share spaces they have encountered or created using photography or sculpture that evoke a sense of the spiritual.

For millennia, humankind has acknowledged the renewing and healing powers of the four elements. Both ancient native and more recent traditional religions find in them symbols and actual material appropriate to connect believers with the spiritual.
While some approach the natural elements as sensory connections in rituals, the religious practices of others call believers to study and deepen their knowledge of the natural world as a way to further know their creator.
This exhibit is intended to visually explore all of those ways the natural elements become sacramental. What's more, we are interested to consider new and diverse uses of materials as well as work that may even become rituals themselves.

God’s Word (Revelation) calls each to Change of Heart / Conversion (Interior Revolution)
This exhibit speaks to the Power of God’s Word. The deep and long Christian tradition of the journey of the heart turning to God, listening to the revealed Word is at its core the meaning of Christian "Revolution."
It is strongly associated with the authentic meaning of the Muslim concept of” jihad:” an INTERIOR change of heart/vision/action.
The WORD invites Change . . . we invited artists to evoke that through the work they submitted . . . for millennia, humankind has acknowledged the renewing and healing powers of the four elements.
