lentfest 2022 - Annual art exhibition images of hope
"Always be ready to give a reason for the HOPE that is within you." (Peter 3:15)
Are you a visual artist? You could be a painter, photographer, digital artist or sculptor. Whatever media you work in, we are looking for contributions to our Annual Lentfest Art Exhibition. Reflecting on the theme, “Always be ready to give an answer for the HOPE that is within you.” (Peter 3:15), we are challenging you to come up with something inspirational. It should be an original work to which you own the copyright. To take part, please complete the short application form and upload a photograph of the work for our festival guide when it is completed. By doing so, you give AGAP permission to display the artwork publicly during Lentfest and to include photographs of this artwork in the virtual Online programme for the festival via the Internet, including our social media channels, as part of Lentfest 2022. This exhibition is open to adults over 18 years of age. Click here to read full terms and conditions.
Dates and Venue Our intention is that the exhibition may be toured across various sites within the Archdiocese of Glasgow during Lent 2022. Artists taking part must agree to the transit of their artwork between venues as required during the time of exhibition, which is to be understood as taking place between Shrove Tuesday 1st March and Easter Sunday 17th April 2022. Artwork will also be photographed and displayed Online in a virtual exhibition.
Artwork should be submitted to the Archdiocese of Glasgow Arts Project on Thursday, 24th February 2022 by 5pm or it may be refused. Those wishing to submit artwork must submit a completed, signed proposal form by Monday 24th January 2022, briefly outlining how the subject of their proposed entry interprets the theme.
