Christ Centered Art Show

April 22-23, 2017

The Christ Centered Art Show is an arts event which includes a broad based experience with Christian focused Fine Arts, Performance and Interactive Arts, Musical, Theatrical, Historical and Scholarly presentations. We look forward to your participation in this spiritually uplifting, juried event and thank you ahead of time for directing your art focus to the specified theme.

Theme: Beatitudes

The theme for the 2017 Christ Centered Art Show is “Beatitudes”, Matthew 5:1-12. Beatitudes: "Blessed are the..", the disciples sat at Jesus' feet as a curious crowd listens in. "Poor in spirit, those who mourn, the merciful..." Followers of Christ are blessed beyond measure. And, as John Piper says, "The beatitudes also contain an implicit invitation to become this kind of person."

Christ Centered Art invites Christian artists to study and meditate on Matthew chapter 5:1-12 in order to create original pieces of art that bring these characteristics to form, the gifts of heaven to color for today's world.
